BRUSSELS (AFP) – Catalonia’s sacked leader Carles Puigdemont yesterday denounced Spain as an undemocratic country that “unjustly” jailed his colleagues, after he was freed on bail in Belgium. Mr Puigdemont and four former ministers were released with conditions on Sunday after turning themselves into Belgian authorities to face a Spanish warrant for their arrest on charges of rebellion and sedition. “Released without bail. Our thoughts are with colleagues unjustly imprisoned by a state that is far from democratic norms,” Mr Puigdemont said on Twitter after the five were released. Belgium’s foreign minister Didier Reynders said it was a legal matter and not one for politicians to deal with.
