outside the courthouse annoyance to where collis pushed him out will be appearing later today and in barcelona the journalist stephen bergen is standing by for us start with you call this push them out has spent the night in jail in northern germany what can we expect from his court hearing today. well we have to see what's in the courts here today and not so many moments and it could be but it's mostly unlikely it's really mostly unlikely that the judge pushed him on today on three but as i told it's mostly unlikely the main purpose of this court appearance is to eat didn't just call a switch to month and to prove the custody he's spent here nights and coming days but once again it's mostly unlikely that she was set free today.
1:05 pm
stephen in barcelona we saw massive clashes where your over night many people injured how angry are people in barcelona over push the most attention. well people are very angry about it but you know people have been angry about the matric government's treatment of this whole issue for several years and particularly since friday when the supreme court judge ruled that basically all of the independence leaders were going to be locked up and doing a trial on the on the fence was similar to them on such as rebellion. and things boiled over half the last night with the the arrest of push them on who i mean the thing is he is you know a legally legitimately elected leader in the election that was called by the matric government the government didn't get the results it wants it but it didn't get it you know if it didn't get the results it's not because of anything unfair happened

1:07 pm
person to another european member state you need to counterpart in your own state a counterpart and the crime which is comparable to the triune which is the european warrant for so that means most media talking about the resolution which is what's months. on the other hand you have the german law high treason but it's not very likely that this both crimes meche to each other because going into high treason needs violence and this is not the point in the special. stephen you mention there that the spanish authorities are cracking down on catalan separatists if pushed is extradited what kind of treatment can he expect from spanish authorities. well i think he will be whisked as quickly as possible into jail and he will probably remain there for
