Carles Puigdemont, the former President of Catalonia, fled from Spain five months ago after the failure of a referendum vote to break away from Spain. He was captured in Germany and now is detained there awaiting charges by Spain of rebellion and sedition. If he is extradited back to Spain, those charges could carry a sentence of 25 years. He fears physical harm if he is sent to a Spanish prison.
Spain: Rodrigo Lanza, an Antifa activist from Chile, beat a man to death with a metal rod for wearing suspenders that were the color of the Spanish flag. Lanza is part of the Barcelona squatter movement, a leftist crime organization. He previously served five years in prison for attacking a policeman who was trying to evict him and other squatters from a building. The attack left the police officer as a quadriplegic.
