German Court Rejects Call For Ex-Catalan Leader to Be Rearrested
Local Editor

A German court Tuesday rejected a request from prosecutors to take former Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont back into custody pending a decision on whether he can be extradited to Spain.

Carles Puigdemont

Puigdemont was detained by German police March 25 after crossing the border from Denmark - charges that stem from an unauthorized referendum last year on Catalonia's independence from Spain.

He was released April 6 after a German court said it appeared he can't be extradited for rebellion, the more serious of the two charges.

Prosecutors in the northern town of Schleswig argued that new information provided by Spanish authorities suggests that would be possible.

They cited videos showing violence against Spanish police and said in a statement that "the disturbances were on such a scale that prosecutors believe that he should also be extradited over the accusation of rebellion."

The prosecutors argued that the charge is comparab
le to two offenses under German law - treason and breaching peace.

They said that Puigdemont would pose a flight risk and called for him to be taken back into custody. The state court in Schleswig disagreed and rejected the request.
Puigdemont remains free with certain conditions, including reporting to police once a week.
