31-Oct-17 TV News: 'Puigdemont calls on Europe to react from Brussels'

Carles Puigdemont is not seeking asylum in Brussels, but calling on Europe to react. This is what the Catalan president, dismissed by the Spanish government, said today in a highly anticipated speech. His stay in the Belgian capital isn’t likely to be short. He explained that he will stay for the time being because he wouldn’t get a fair trial in Spain where he faces charges of rebellion. Yet Spain’s National Court has summoned him to Madrid this Thursday. Despite everything, he claims that his cabinet hasn’t stopped working. Here at Catalan News, we’ll tell you all about his statement from Brussels, as well as the reactions to it and the increasing Spanish judiciary actions against pro-independence officials. / ACN
