Former Catalan Leader Carles Puigdemont Detained by German Police

Recommended Posts

They finally got him!

German police have detained Carles Puigdemont, the former leader of Catalonia, in another blow to the Spanish region’s independence movement.

Mr. Puigdemont was driving in Germany on Sunday morning, en route from Denmark, when police detained him on an international arrest warrant issued by a Spanish judge. The judge had charged Mr. Puigdemont and other separatist leaders on Friday with rebelling against the Spanish state when they declared Catalonia an independent republic in October.

The former head of the Catalonia region is being held in police custody, said a spokesman for Schleswig-Holstein, the German state where Mr. Puigdemont was detained at 11.19 a.m. local time.
