Puigdemont skips court appearance, but will cooperate with authorities - lawyer

Carles Puigdemont did not appear before Spanish judges earlier on Thursday, but the ousted Catalan leader will cooperate with Spanish and Belgian authorities, his Belgian lawyer said. “It is better to take some distance,” Paul Bekaert told Reuters, adding that “the climate is not good.” If they ask, “he will cooperate with Spanish and Belgian justice,” Bekaert said.
