A Belgian court has released the former head of Catalonia Carles Pokdemon and four former Ministers in the province, according to Reuters.

Pujdeme and former members of the Catalan government released until a decision on the execution of European arrest warrants issued by Spain. The trial lasted more than 10 hours.

Pujdeme together with his associates surrendered to Belgian police on the morning of 5 November.

In Brussels, the former head of Catalonia arrived on 30 October, after the Spanish authorities for the independence of Catalonia’s local Parliament on October 27 sent Pokdemon and his government to resign. November 2, Spain’s national court issued a warrant for the arrest Pokdemon and his companions. They face charges of disobeying authorities and the embezzlement of public funds spent on the organization of unrecognized Madrid a referendum on the independence of Catalonia on 1 October.
