The judge Pablo Llarena turns down the request from prosecutors to reactivate the interenational warrant for Carles Puigdemont after he traveled to Denmark to participate in a conference. Despite Llarena finds the prosecturor’s request “reasonable”, he belives that Puigdemont’s trip is clearly part of a strategy to be invested president. He will consider a new arrest warrant, not necessarily far, when the constitutional order and normal parliamentary working are not at risk (read text in Spanish)
