Sacked leader Puigdemont not seeking asylum — Catalan independence

The current situation in Spain can be described by only one word - "ambiguity", political analyst Beatriz Hernández said in an interview with Sputnik Mundo, commenting on Madrid's recent decision to invoke Article 155 and impose direct rule over Catalonia. But before it was issued, Puigdemont had told reporters that "you have to abide by the law - and we won't shy away from our responsibilities".
The EU and its member states have been resolute in their support for Madrid during the Catalan independence crisis, but Michel has been more muted, calling for dialogue to resolve the standoff. The day was marred by violence: The Spanish civil guard came into Catalonia to forcibly repel voters from voting stations.
The Catalan Parliament was dissolved by Rajoy on Friday after the Spanish Senate agreed earlier on Friday to apply Article 155 of the Spanish Constitution to temporarily suspend the region's autonomy.
That paved the way for pro-unity forces to take the initiative.
The ousted regional minister for business, Santi Vila, who belongs to the separatist Democratic Party of Catalonia which Puigdemont leads and where she is regarded as a moderate, said nobody in the party leadership knew about the Brussels plan.
The French-speaking Belgian leader was quick to stress after Puigdemont's news conference that his government had "not undertaken any step to encourage Mr Puigdemont's arrival on Belgian soil" and warned him not to expect special treatment.
Despite warnings not to proceed, the pro-independence government in Catalonia declared independence on Friday. Please refresh the page for the fullest version.
The former head of Catalonia is on his way to Brussels to see lawyers, Belgian state broadcaster VRT said on Monday. A court now has to decide whether to accept the case against the leaders and bring charges.
Meanwhile, Spain's Supreme Court summoned the former speaker of the Catalan parliament to charge her, a judicial source said.
- If charged in Spain, could he claim asylum?
As of this writing, the Catalan politicians have not publicly responded to the summons. Is there a road back from, or forward through, this impasse?
While a handful of ousted officials went to work Monday in a show of defiance, Puigdemont - who had long said he would go to jail for the cause - was nowhere to be seen.

In recent days, there have been even rumors that Puigdemon might apply for political asylum in Belgium.
"I am here in Brussels as the capital of Europe".
Within the movement for independence there are factions dissatisfied either with the referendum in the form in which it was organized or by the unilateral declaration of independence.
"I want to say that we are with him".
Paul Bakert, a Belgian lawyer acting for Puigdemont told Reuters that the sacked president will seek asylum in Belgium.
