Parliament speaker against Puigdemont's detention: 'He's a free man in a free Europe'
The Catalan parliament speaker, Laura Borràs, expressed her outrage of Puigdemont's detention to Catalan News. "His freedom is not being respected. He's a free man in a free Europe, he has a political agenda across Europe. Last week he was in Paris," she said. "Italy should be respecting the European courts and Spain should be respecting president Puigdemont's political inviolability." Borràs also sent a message to the Spanish government: "If you are talking about peace and negotiation or dialogue and then you are arresting people and not considering their rights, these things are not compatible."
