German court authorises extradition of Carles Puigdemont

Latest news

    A German court has authorised the extradition to Spain of former Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont. 

    A court in Schleswig-Holstein ruled on Thursday that Puigdemont could be extradited, but only on a charge of misuse of public funds. 

    A second charge of rebellion did not warrant an extradition from Germany to Spain, the court ruled. 

    “Extradition on the accusation of misappropriation of public funds is permissible; extradition on the accusation of rebellion is not permissible,” the superior regional court of Schleswig-Holstein state said in a statement. 

    DPA news agency reported a spokesperson said the extradition order for Puigdemont will soon be approved by Schleswig-Holstein’s state attorney general.
