Catalan leader won't return to Spain

Bulgaria The Attorney of Basque Terrorist Group ETA might Defend Puigdemont in Belgium

Spanish prosecutors announced plans to seek sedition, rebellion and embezzlement charges against Puigdemont and his colleagues, who are now in Brussels "for safety purposes and freedom".

The catalan deposed Carles Puigdemont will not yield to his calling of justice in Madrid on Thursday and will ask to be queried from Belgium, said Wednesday his lawyer to the public television of catalonia.

It also gave them three days to pay a deposit of $7.2 million to cover potential liabilities, BBC reported on Tuesday.

A disputed Catalonian referendum on October 1 ended with a vote for the autonomous region to break away from Spain. If they do not appear, prosecutors could order their arrest. Six others, including the parliament's speaker, have been called before judges. A day after he arrived in Brussels, Mr Puigdemont told a packed news conference he would return home "immediately" if a fair judicial process was guaranteed in Spain. Puigdemont's failure to appear in court starting tomorrow could jeopardize his chance to run, however.

The charge of rebellion carries a maximum 30-year jail term.

Scientists can't explain a 'worrying' rise in methane levels
New research by the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) reveals it rose a level not seen in 800,000 years. It hopes that will contribute to debate at a major climate conference in Bonn, Germany, starting next week.

Puigdemont is now in Belgium with some of his government members and hired a lawyer for his case.

But Puigdemont said he's not there to file an asylum application - he's there to lobby Europe for Catalonia's cause.

The government in Madrid rejected the secession push, and after Catalan lawmakers declared independence last week the central government asserted control over the region and dissolved the local parliament. "Will the state respect the results that could give separatist forces a majority?"

The ANC says that elections to be held on December 21 can't be considered to have full democratic guarantees because they were "illegitimately called by the government in Madrid" and because two activists are in jail pending sedition charges, including ANC leader Jordi Sanchez.
