Ousted Cata­lan lead­ers have no role, says Ra­joy

The Daily Telegraph - - World news -

The Span­ish prime min­is­ter has ruled out ne­go­ti­at­ing the fu­ture sta­tus of Cat­alo­nia with the lead­ers who un­law­fully de­clared in­de­pen­dence.

Mar­i­ano Ra­joy de­scribed Car­les Puigde­mont, the ousted pres­i­dent, and his for­mer col­leagues as “po­lit­i­cally off lim­its”. Mr Ra­joy said the re­gion’s de­posed gov­ern­ment – eight of whom are in cus­tody while Mr Puigde­mont and four oth­ers await an ex­tra­di­tion hear­ing from Bel­gium – should not re­turn to rep­re­sen­ta­tive po­lit­i­cal roles.
