Puigdemont complained he was barred from entering European Parliament

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Former Catalan President Carles Puigdemont complained he was barred from entering the European Parliament in Brussels on Wednesday, following his election as an MEP last weekend.

Puigdemont, who fled Spain in 2017 to avoid charges related to a secession referendum deemed illegal by Spanish courts, tweeted that the Parliament’s secretary-general had given instructions to refuse access to him and Toni Comín, a former Catalan minister. Both men, who now live in Brussels, won seats in Sunday’s European election.
