Preliminary extradition hearing for Clara Ponsatí in Edinburgh

Tomorrow morning (Thu 12 April 2018) here in Scotland at the Sheriff Court in Edinburgh there will be a preliminary hearing for Spain’s request to extradite Professor Clara Ponsatí under the European Arrest Warrant. The Catalan Defence Committee Scotland have organised a demonstration of support outside the court on Chambers Street from 9.15am. Independence Live will be broadcasting live from the demonstration.

The full hearing will begin next week at the same court on Wed !8 April 2018. A crowdfunding appeal for the University of St Andrews professor’s legal costs raised nearly a quarter of a million pounds, most of it pledged within hours of the appeal going live.
