NBI News brings you the latest news of the subject that has in suspense to European and world public opinion: the Puigdemont case.
The Puigdemont case is a highly complex political / legal issue, of uncertain end, involving many actors, countries, legislations, politicians but mainly the focus that has focused attention, without the slightest doubt, the different interpretation of the case, by the countries involved and the legal fragility of the evidence (and therefore of the accusations) that is observed throughout the Spanish trial carried out by Judge Pablo Llarena against Catalan politicians and activists who are currently in prison for questioned and even denied evidence by the Spanish financial and financial chief responsible for the accounts of the Generalitat of Catalonia, the Minister of Finance of the Government of Spain, Cristobal Montoro.
Following the words of spokesperson of the Regional Justice Court of Schleswig-Holstein, the jugde, Frauke Holme to NBI News
– Do you know when there may be something new about the Puigdemont case?
There is not a date to be announced yet, as the next step in the extradition proceedings is that the Generalstaatsanwalt (Attorney General’s Office) has to file a motion with the Court (Oberlandesgericht) requesting that the extradition is declared to be permissible. It is up to the Generalstaatsanwaltschaft at what time this motion will be filed.
– The court requested more information from Spain regarding the misappropriation of public funds. Spain has sent the information?
The proceedings are at this point in the hands of the Generalstaatsanwaltschaft. We do not know whether they have received further information from Spain.
– Today, Spanish Finance Minister Cristobal Montoro told the El Mundo newspaper (and that it reproduces almost all the Spanish press) that:
“I do not know with what money those urns of the Chinese people of October 1 were paid, nor the maintenance of Puigdemont, but I know not with public money.” For example, Montoro had intervened and under his control the finances of the Catalunia government, his statement is not minor, he is a central actor in the situation. This public statement and the interview in general (is it broader) can affect the Puigdemont case?
This is up to decide for the deciding Senate of the Court once the Generalstaatsanwaltschaft has filed their motion to declare the extradition to be permissible.
