Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont ‘turns himself in to police’
    2017-November-6  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

OUSTED Catalonian leader Carles Puigdemont and four former ministers have reportedly turned themselves in to Belgian police.

Belgian state broadcaster VRT said yesterday all five have arrived at the Brussels prosecutor’s office.

The prosecutor is due to make a statement about a European arrest warrant issued for Puigdemont and the other four as Spain seeks their return for an investigation related to Catalonia’s independence bid.

They had fled to Belgium last week after being removed from power by Spanish authorities as part of an extraordinary crackdown to impede the region’s illegal declaration of independence.

Federal prosecutors in Belgium had said Saturday that they were studying the warrants and that they had shared them with city counterparts in Brussels.

A Spanish National Court judge issued warrants for the five separatist politicians on suspicion of five crimes, including rebellion, rebellion and embezzlement, Friday, a day after the same judge sent another eight former Catalan Cabinet members to jail without bail while her investigation continues. A ninth spent a night in jail and was freed after posting bail.

The separatist majority of Catalonia’s Parliament ignored repeated warnings from Spanish authorities and voted in favor of a declaration of independence Oct. 27.

The next day, Spain’s central government used extraordinary constitutional powers to fire Catalonia’s government, take charge of its administrations, dissolve its regional parliament and call a regional election.
