German prosecutor orders Catalan separatist Carles Puigdemont's release on bail
Catalan separatist and the former head of the regional government Carles Puigdemont paid bail on Friday, allowing him to walk out of jail after he was arrested last month on a European warrant. After walking out of jail, Puigdemont called for the release of so-called [!] political prisoners in Spain, notably those who were arrested for their involvement in the Catalan independence referendum.
In a blow [?] to Spanish authorities, a German court on Wednesday refused to extradite him on charges of high treason, the closest German legal equivalent to Spain's most serious charge of rebellion.
yes, well, if arrest of "democratically" elected representatives is not a political action, sumbuddy needs to read their Politics again. In its entirety. Or tweet the latest edition of "Catalan Rappers Convicted for Insulting the King or Smutty Impersonation of a Black Man or Hate Speech or Terrorism" or wtf.
The Boney Facts
The court upheld an embezzlement charge for
funding a state function with treasury monies. hmmm.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
