The National High Court declares the trial against the two Mossos d’Esquadra who accompanied Carles Puigdemont when he was arrested in Germany in March 2018 to have concluded, pending the sentence


The Prosecutor’s Office lowers the penalty request and asks for a year and a half in prison for each of them for committing a crime of concealment involving the president in exile. With this reduction, the Mossos would avoid going to prison. The Prosecutor’s Office considers that the Mossos helped Puigdemont ‘knowingly’ so that he could dodge the consequences of the European Arrest Warrant, and considers that the Mossos had no obligation ‘neither to arrest him nor to report him’ but that, ‘as public servants,’ they should have ‘refrained’ from traveling with Puigdemont. The National High Court declares the trial concluded, pending the sentence.
