Former Catalan president Carles Puigdemont was released by the Belgian authorities after he turned himself in following the latest arrest warrant issued by Spain.
"Since yesterday morning I have been at the disposal of the Belgian authorities after learning that there was a European arrest warrant. I have appeared before the judge and the judge has now set the conditions for my release without bail, with the possibility of leaving the country with his permission,” said Puigdemont.
A Spanish judge Llarena issued the third 'euro-warrant' against Puigdemont after the Supreme Court sentenced nine leaders of Catalonia’s pro-independence movement to between 9 and 13 years in prison for the role in the authorised referendum in 2017.
