MADRID (Agencies) – Spain’s Supreme Court yesterday rejected the state prosecutor’s demand to reactivate a European arrest warrant for former Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont. Mr Puigdemont, who was in Denmark yesterday to give a speech, potentially faces decades of jail in Spain for leading Catalonia’s independence drive. The decision to reactivate the arrest warrant was postponed until the Catalan parliament is restored to normal activity, the court said. The speaker of the Catalan parliament Roger Torrent yesterday proposed Mr Puigdemont as president of Catalonia, saying his candidacy to once again head Catalonia’s regional government is “absolutely legitimate”.
