Carles Puigdemont flees to Belgium
October 31 , 2017
The President of Catalonia along with many of his ousted cabinet members have fled from Spain. According to media reports, the Catalan President, Carles Puigdemont, and five of his former cabinet members fled to Belgium just hours before the attorney general of Spain called for charges of sedition, misuse of public funds and rebellion to be brought against them. The charges were levied following their decision to declare the independence of Catalonia from Spain last week.
