Carles Puigdemont is the Catalan president that fled Spain after the Spanish Supreme Court ordered his arrest for declaring independence of Catalonia from Spain.
has been heading up the main judicial probe into the actions of Puigdemont and other pro-independence politicians last year, when the regional government held an illegal referendum on Catalonia’s secession from Spain, before unilaterally declaring independence in parliament.
The article claims that Puigdemont and his lawyers are suing Llarena in a Belgium court:
Puigdemont is demanding a symbolic payment of one euro from the judge should he win the case.
(Another article making similar claims about the case from the same paper, in Spanish, was published a few weeks later.)
I find it extraordinary that a court case over 1 Euro would be tolerated by a Belgian judge, and not be considered an abuse of process.
Is the case actually being fought over a single Euro?
