Professor Clara Ponsatí, an economics professor at the University of St Andrews, faces extradition to Spain to face politically motivated charges.
Professor Ponsatí, who was Education Minister in Catalonia when independence was declared, faces charges for her role in the Catalan government. On Friday 23rd March, a European Arrest Warrant was issued for Professor Ponsatí, who is currently living in Scotland and working at the university.
These charges are an attack on democracy and human rights by the Spanish government. There are no guarantees that Professor Ponsatí's human rights will be respected if extradited.
As students at the University of St Andrews, we call upon the Principal, Sally Mapstone, to stand behind Professor Ponsatí and support her as she faces these charges.
