Now a Spanish judge has summoned the ousted Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont, along with his Cabinet to appear in Madrid’s national court on Thursday morning as part of their investigation into sedition and rebellion.

Mr Puigdemont himself, who’s in Brussels, told a rather chaotic press conference he hadn’t gone there to apply for asylum promising he’d  go back home “immediately” if he was guaranteed a fair judicial process in Spain.
