Puigdemont Blasts Spain

Catalonia’s sacked separatist leader Carles Puigdemont on Monday denounced Spain as an undemocratic country that “unjustly” jailed his colleagues, his first reaction since he was freed on bail in Belgium. Puigdemont and four former ministers were released with conditions Sunday night after turning themselves in to Belgian authorities to face a Spanish warrant for their arrest on charges of rebellion and sedition, AFP reported. “Released without bail. Our thoughts are with colleagues unjustly imprisoned by a state that is far from democratic norms,” Puigdemont said on Twitter hours after the five were released. Puigdemont, who still describes himself as Catalonia’s “president,” has also said he is willing to run as a candidate in the December 21 regional election called by Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy to “restore normality” to Catalonia.
