The former head of the government of Catalonia Carles Putteman, who received political asylum in Belgium, said that the conditions for his return to Spain has not yet been established.

After returning in August to Brussels from Germany, where he had spent about four months, Putteman stated that it would continue to engage in political activity in the name of the legitimate demands of the Catalans and promised to seek the release of all political prisoners in Spain, making all the necessary efforts at the European level.

«The conditions for my return have not been created yet, we are subjected to severe repression,» said Putteman on Friday on air of broadcasting company RTBF.

He stressed that if the European justice, whether Belgian, German or Scottish, a decision will be made on his departure to Spain, «naturally, he will agree with this decision».

Answering the question whether he intends to participate in elections to the European Parliament in may 2019 from the party of Flemish nationalists «free Flemish Alliance» (N-VA), Putteman said that «technically it is quite possible», but such a proposal to him while nobody addressed, and it is not part of his primary political agenda.

Earlier in September, the Catalan politician participated in the city of Sint-Niklaas in East Flanders in a campaign event is a member of the government coalition in Belgium nationalist party. A number of heads N-VA has previously expressed the desire to see Pokdemon in its electoral list. He said that, despite the support of N-VA, endorsing the desire of Catalonia for self-determination, would not «interfere in the political reality of Belgium».

Pujdeme categorically rejected the allegations that the Flemish nationalists deny him financial support.

Pokdemon inclusion in the electoral list of the N-VA is legally legitimate, since EU citizens can participate in elections in another member country of the community.
