German prosecutor requests Puigdemont extradition to Spain

Berlin (AFP) – German prosecutors said Tuesday that they have requested a court’s permission to extradite Catalonia’s ousted president Carles Puigdemont on a rebellion charge following his arrest last month.

“The prosecutor’s office of Schleswig-Holstein state applied for an extradition arrest warrant against former Catalonian regional president Carles Puigdemont from the superior regional court,” it said in a statement.
