The former leader of Catalonia said he wanted to avoid confrontation in Spain.
The former head of the government of Catalonia Carles Putteman said that went to Belgium, in particular, to avoid violence in Catalonia, reports RIA Novosti.
Answering the question, if he left to Belgium to avoid the wave of violence in Spain, he replied that “it’s one of the reasons”.
“I came to Brussels in order to prevent confrontational situations arise. Many were ready to resist,” said Pujdeme.
“I could stay there and make a call to resistance. I didn’t and don’t want to do. We never advocated violence,” − said the former leader of Catalonia.
Recall, Belgium has received a European arrest warrant Pokdemon.
