Jaume Alonso-Cuevillas believes that “there are very solid elements to think about it” and calls the arrest of the historian who accompanied the president on his trip a “show”.

The lawyer Jaume Alonso-Cuevillas, who coordinates the defense of President Carles Puigdemont, believes that they exist “very solid elements” to think that extradition can be denied.

Alonso-Cuevillas explained that the German judge who attended Puigdemont apologized for not being able to resolve his case earlier due to Easter.

In an interview with Rac1, he has considered that the arrest on Wednesday of the historian who accompanied the JxCat leader in Germany was “a show”, and has denied that he committed any crime.

The lawyer has defended that Josep Lluís Alay, who was later released, is a historian expert in international relations that he “did a bit of an assistant” to Puigdemont, which is not illegal, and has reported that the National Police had put a locator in the car.

“Formally they have not told us what he is accused of. Nor have they told us if it has to go to court,” criticized the lawyer, who has rejected that it could be an alleged case of cover-up as it occurred outside of Spain and given that Puigdemont was moving to Belgium to go before the judge and thus comply with the euro order issued by the Supreme Court, he has assured.

Thus, he has framed the arrest in “a fear campaign, of making President Puigdemont’s environment nervous “, and has reproached the intelligence services for waiting for the politician to arrive in Germany to carry out the arrest.

“We have filed a complaint. They will be punished in Belgium. It involves jail time here.”, has declared Bekaert. The Belgian penal code provides penalties of between six months and three years in prison for disseminating private messages without consent.

On January 31, the Telecinco presenter published the messages recorded on Comín’s phone the day before, when he was attending a political event in Leuven organized by the Flemish nationalist party NV-A, replacing Puigdemont.

“This is over. Ours have sacrificed us (…) Moncloa’s plan succeeds,” Puigdemont told him in those messages sent through the Signal application to the former Health Minister.
