On the 1st June, German prosecutors formally applied to the higher regional court in Germany for the extradition of Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont. German prosecutors want Puigdemont returned to Spain to face charges related to his role in the Catalan independence movement, last year. The formal request comes one month after German prosecutors failed to convince the court that Puigdemont should be remanded in custody pending his full extradition hearing.

Last week also saw Pedro Sanchez become the new Prime Minister of Spain, however it is unlikely that the new Spanish leader will reverse the Spanish Court’s decision to try and extradite Puigdemont. A date for the final decision regarding Puigdemont’s extradition has not yet been announced.
