President Puigdemont requests an “independent legal report” to compare the opinion of the Supreme Court with the German court decision

President Carles Puigdemont requests a legal opinion from a team of German lawyers and renowned experts in Criminal Law about the trial of those responsible for the referendum on October 1st that is being carried out in the Spanish Supreme Court.

This opinion, led by Professor Florian Jessberger, is intended to conduct a comparative  study between the ruling of the Schleswig-Holstein Tribunal on the extradition of MHP Puigdemont, and the future ruling of the Supreme Court, given that both sentences apply to the same facts and carry the same criminal charges.

The opinion should establish whether or not there exist violations of European Union’s rights and International Criminal Law, and will not address any issue that does directly concern the application of the law.
