Spain will issue second international arrest warrant against former head of Catalonia, Carles Puigdemont if he leaves Belgium and travels to Denmark, Reuters reported. 

On January 22, Puigdemont plans to participate in a debate in the Copenhagen University.

This departure would be the first for Puigdemont after he fled to avoid prosecution in Spain. The Spanish prosecutor's office will immediately ask for a European arrest warrant if Puigdemont visitս Denmark.

Spain is suspecting Puigdemont of organizing an insurrection, rebellion and embezzlement after the unilateral declaration of independence by the Catalan Parliament in October 2017. In late December 2017, Puigdemont asked Spain to allow him to return to Catalonia.
