Similar warrants have been requested for four of Puigdemont's fellow cabinet members, on grounds of rebellion, sedition and misuse of public funds, reports the BBC.
01 de noviembre de 2017, 09:18Madrid, Nov 1 (Prensa Latina) The removed president of Catalonia, Carles Puigdemont, ignores the subpoena he received from the National Court (AN) of Spain to testify on Thursday for alleged crimes of rebelliousness, sedition and embezzlement, his lawyer said today.
The deposed leader was photographed in a cafe in Brussels on Thursday while other Catalan government members appeared in court.
Runaway Puigdemont who earlier sought guarantees of a fair trial for him and his colleagues previously said he would return to Spain but his recent comments from Belgium made it clear that he is not coming back to Madrid anytime soon.
This came after the regional government voted to declare the independence of the north-eastern region.
Carles Puigdemont's lawyer said his client would stay away from Spain while the political climate was "not good". With Puigdemont and four others in Belgium, only 15 turned up. The six had been summoned to court for questioning by a judge.
State Attorney General Jose Manuel Maza has filed those charges against them due to their hypothetical responsibility for the unilateral declaration of independence approved last Friday in the Catalonian Parliament.
The high court, known as the the Audiencia Nacional, had ordered Puigdemont and the 13 other ministers to appear.
