Spanish court proposes charging Catalan police for harboring Puigdemont in Germany
Judge agrees to close case against two others who were also accompanying former president
Spain's National Court has proposed bringing charges against two Catalan Mossos police officers for harboring exiled former president Carles Puigdemont when he was detained in Germany in March 2018.
Judge Manuel García Castejón has, however, agreed to close the case against the two other people who were with the former president at the time of his arrest, Josep Maria Matamala and Lluís Alay.
Castejón claims they attempted to help him evade justice during his journey back home to Belgium from Finland "despite being police officers and knowing full well that Puigdemont had a European warrant issued for his arrest."
According to him, at the actions of the two Mossos in question "intended to prevent the fugitive's arrest."
