Court to decide on Spain request to extradite Puigdemont - German minister

BERLIN (Reuters) - German Justice Minister Katarina Barley on Monday declined to comment on the arrest in Germany of Carles Puigdemont, saying a court must first make a decision on Spain’s request to extradite the exiled Catalan politician.

“In accordance with both European arrest warrant rules and German laws, the process is in the hands of the courts and officials in the state of Schleswig-Holstein,” she said. “We must wait for their review and decision.”
