Spain: Santi Vila urges for political solution following release on bail

Former Catalan government cabinet member Santi Vila called on the Spanish government to find a political solution as he was released from Estremera prison, on the outskirts of Madrid, on Friday. Vila, along with eight other former Generalitat counsellors, had been held in custody in relation to Catalonia's push for secession. Following a payment of EUR 50,000 bail (USD 58073), Vila was released... Еще, but could still face up to 30 years in prison if convicted. Speaking to the press Vila stated that it was a 'truly terrible situation which [ended] with politicians in jail', and once again urged for a negotiated solution between the Spanish government and the secession movement, calling on 'all political groupings in Spain [...] to intercede'. The former cabinet member stepped down before Catalan's declaration of independence on October 27 and has pushed for a political dialogue since. Meanwhile, a Spanish judge is considering whether to issue an international arrest warrant for the former Catalan President Carles Puigdemont, who flew to Brussels after the Catalan government had its powers suspended by Spanish authorities.
