bring in our correspondents barbara basal is in brussels and charlotte shell some pill is in barcelona with the latest good to see you both barbara let's come to you in brussels first spain state prosecutor now requesting a european arrest warrant for and some of his ex deputies has there been any reaction there in brussels. very dry comment off the state prosecution office here in belgium and that says as soon as the arrest warrant iran leaves here in brussels the law will be applied now that means because this is merely an end a purely judicial process between the two authorities in spain and here in belgium which means that then the belgium police will probably arrest card as the moment they will maybe put him under supervision in any case they have to make sure that he doesn't flee again because that he has left spain they'd prosecution there and
6:05 pm
so of course there is the risk that he might do it again so for the bajan. that means there is a flight risk they mourn his have to arrest him and then the whole process starts rolling barbara if we do feel this one step further could carlos push him on an e.u. citizen be extradited to spain. this whole european arrest warrant it regulates the relatively easy and formalistic sort of educational procedure for extraditing one citizen to another that you stayed where that prison is supposed to have infringed the law and is being sought by the courts that's the purpose of the whole thing so basically yes he needs to go he can appeal before a belgian court there are some grounds for appeal the chances are not very high for success he can make time he can sort of push this further later into into the winter basically the belgian has sixty days to extradite to put him on and
6:06 pm
we will see how this plays out traditionally. try to stay here for as long as possible but his chances of winning this case are basically nil all right charlotte let's come to you in barcelona now where there have been a pro independence protests today how of people there been reacting to this escalating crisis surrounding pooja ma and members of colonial government. that's right just a short time ago there was an enormous crowd of pro independence supporters behind me they were here to greet several returning catalan officials who faced the supreme court today to offer their support they were chanting that they were behind them and that they did not belong in prison earlier today we also had a similar protests outside the regional government office people were saying that it is a hero you do of course have
6:07 pm
a divide though from people here in catalonia it cannot be forgotten that more than half the population isn't in favor of independence and will be looking with a very critical eye at the proceedings that have followed that independence declaration on friday show we heard what barbara said it looks to be a difficult case for carlos bush to ma and he's facing charges of sedition and rebellion they carry long sentences so are some of his deputies what is at stake here for catalonia. well we've got this election that's happening on december twenty first and of course it's going to be crucial to see whether or not the leaders of this independence movement all in prison at that point it certainly does look like that's going to be the case so the key question is how exactly are they going to fight an election behind bars or whether indeed they can surely as well without them there are going to be some questions as to whether or not the independence movement can survive and whether we're just going to see an
6:08 pm
election where pro independence posses can't run in which case they'll be a lot of people wondering whether or not it's going to be a fair representation of how people feel here in catalonia about this independence movement charlotte shell from hell in barcelona and barbara vessel in brussels thank you both for your insights. to the u.s. where donald trump has renewed calls for the death penalty to be handed to the suspect in tuesday's attack in new york city the accused to pause waived his right to silence and told authorities he was inspired to kill by the so-called islamic states online propaganda meanwhile u.s. president has called for a capital punishment for sar pov tweeting he killed eight people and should get the death penalty family and friends of the eight victims have been holding vigils in their memory let's bring in our washington bureau chief alexander phenomena with the latest hi alexandria could donald trump's death penalty remarks actually
6:09 pm
jeopardize a fair trial well actually it is possible that donald trump's remarks could have consequences because he's demand for death penalty for the suspect could be seen as a public intervention that could in the case and that could come back and haunt prosecutors and help defense attorneys defense attorneys could use those remarks now to argue that they're a client has no chance of getting a fair trial and that is actually why presidents are normally advised not to weigh in on pending criminal cases meanwhile xander this investigation is continuing as you said any new details have emerged about the suspect and the attack. well actually we actually we are learning more and more details of the suspects personality we know nor know that they he had been planning this attack for about
