Catalonia’s Puigdemont leaves German jail on bail

NEUMsNSTER, Germany, April 6, 2018 (BSS/AFP) – Ousted Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont left a German jail Friday after judges ordered his release on bail as they mull his extradition to Spain on a corruption charge, while dropping the more serious charge of rebellion.

“I would like to thank everyone for their help and solidarity,” Puigdemont told reporters in German outside the Neumuenster prison, after posting bail of 75,000 euros ($92,000).
