The Italian Justice will not decide now whether to hand over Carles Puigdemont. The judges of the Sassari court of appeal have decided to suspend the extradition process of the Catalan former identity until the European Justice resolves the preliminary ruling raised by Pablo Llarena. According to sources in his defense, the Italian judges have suspended the process until they have an answer and Puigdemont has been released in the meantime.
The former president of the Generalitat de Catalunya went to Sardinia this morning after being arrested and released without precautions more than a week ago, when he was arrested at the airport. Judge Pablo Llarena had insisted on the opposite of what his Italian counterparts decided today: that the order and the extradition process were still alive even though there was a pending preliminary ruling.
