Germany can extradite Puigdemont to Spain for graft not rebellion: Court

AFP  |  Berlin 

A today ruled that deposed Catalan leader Puigdemont may be extradited to but only for alleged corruption and not on the more serious charge of rebellion.

"Extradition on the accusation of misappropriation of public funds is permissible; extradition on the accusation of rebellion is not permissible," the superior regional court of state said in a statement.

Puigdemont was detained in in late March on a European arrest warrant from for his role in Catalonia's failed independence bid last October.
