Piugdemont: Spain jailing ex-Catalan ministers an ‘attack on democracy’

Former Catalan President Carles Puigdemont on Friday spoke publicly for the first time since he became the subject of criminal prosecution by Spain this week — saying the legal moves are a strike against democracy.
Puigdemont fled to Belgium early this week after Madrid's top prosecutor said criminal charges might be coming over the region's failed attempt to secede from Spain.
