ROME (UrduPoint News / Sputnik – 24th September, 2021) Former head of the Catalan government Carles Puigdemont has been detained on the Italian island of Sardinia at the request of the Supreme Court of Spain, El Confidencial news outlet reported.

The former Catalan leader arrived in Sardinia to meet regional politicians, take part in a folk festival and visit the town of Alghero that maintains close cultural ties with Catalonia.
