2017-18 Spanish constitutional crisis

Federal prosecutors in Germany apply in a Schleswig-Holstein court for the extradition of Carles Puigdemont to Spain, arguing that the treason charges are valid according to German law, because, according to the prosecutors, "the violence in Catalonia on election day can be attributed to the wanted individual".

The former Catalan leader is wanted in Spain on charges of rebellion and misuse of public funds.
