• Courts Putin's 'emissary' offered 10,000 Russian soldiers to Puigdemont for independence

  • Carles Puigdemont met in his official home with an emissary of Vladimir Putin before the unilateral declaration of independence

Four and a half years after his escape and months after finding out if the European Justice is in favor of his extradition to Spain, Carles Puigdemont witnesses the definitive disappearance of his already meager political credit after multiplying the evidence that he probed Russia's support for the independence of Catalonia at key moments of the

With this heavy ballast, Puigdemont will face the examination of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU), which at the end of the year calculates to sentence whether the Supreme Court is competent to demand the delivery of the former president of the Generalitat to Spain.

Already in July, the EU Advocate General will issue an opinion on the matter which, although it will not be binding, will make it possible to speculate on the fate of the fugitive, who by then will have abandoned all his political responsibilities to focus on his final fight against Justice.

On June 4 Puigdemont will cease to hold the presidency of Junts, a party he founded just two years ago to destroy the last vestiges of Convergència and which he is now abandoning to his fate plunged into a fratricidal war between its two factions, the one headed by the accused

The EU is also contemplating a progressive disfigurement of the often inadvertent MEP Puigdemont, who in recent months has suffered notorious defeats in the European Parliament.

The fugitive did not manage to prevent the European Parliament from preparing to investigate his links with Putin's Russia despite his maneuvers together with Podemos to suppress from the report on foreign interference the allusions that proved the repeated attempts of his collaborators -with

at the top - for currying favor with the Kremlin.

Nor did the European Commission accept to investigate the use of the Pegasus program despite the fact that the Catalan independence movement claimed it and that Puigdemont's entourage is among the list of those investigated by the CNI with judicial authorization, as admitted by the director of Spanish intelligence,
