FinlandFinnish MP of the Centre Party and the host of the visit to Finland by the exiled President of Catalonia Carles Puigdemont Mikko Känä sends a direct message to prime minister of Spain Mariano Rajoy:

– Mr. Rajoy must now acknowledge, that independence process of Catalonia has gone international and Spains every action is being monitored by citizens, politicians and human rights organizations across the globe. Rajoy must now let Catalonia go, or face the dire consequences.

People are starting to boycott spanish products and do not want to travel to a country, which treats its own catalan citizens like this. Rajoy must descend down from his Ivory Tower. International mediation process must be launched immediately or all the Spain will suffer.

Kärnä appeals directly to German politicians and especially to the justice minister Katarina Barley.

– Mrs. minister Barley is an expert in political conflict and referendums. She of all the people knows, that Spain has not respected laws and conventions of the EU during the Catalan independence process. I hope Mrs. minister Barley finds the courage in her heart and speaks out loud against the extradition of Carles Puigdemont and for a peaceful and democratic solution to the crisis in Catalonia.
