The Spanish prosecution is not willing to give up trying to extradite the three Catalan leaders in Brussels. Barely a day after extradition requests were rejected in Belgium, Spain's prosecutor’s office requested the Spanish Supreme Court again issue a European arrest warrant against Toni Comín, Meritxell Serret, and Lluís Puig. A court in the EU capital denied the Spanish petition due to “irregularities” and “procedural defects.” There was no national arrest warrant issued in Spain, an element deemed mandatory for an EU arrest warrant to be taken into consideration.
