  • Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “EU Parliament lifts immunity of 3 Catalans, including Puigdemont” – below is their description.

    The European Parliament (EP) has voted to strip immunity from the former president of Spain’s Catalonia region, Carles Puigdemont, and two of his associates – a move that could pave the way for the political figures to be extradited.

    The politicians fled abroad in 2017, following an independence referendum – and the subsequent declaration of independence – which the Spanish government deemed illegal.
