L'ex-líder dels laboristes escocesos i diputada al Parlament d'Edimburg donant suport a Clara Ponsatí. Aprèn-ne, @miqueliceta.

This reminds me of the good old days in Scottish politics, a time when there could be agreement - even on controversial things like it not being a good thing for a government to order the arrest and imprisonment of its political opponents. Nostalgia, eh?

@kezdugdale @C_Stihler_MEP Good to see one or two Scottish Labour politicians oppose the twisted use of European Arrest Warrants simply to silence & punish those with different political views.

@kezdugdale @C_Stihler_MEP In Spain courts designed to tackle terrorism, algside drug draffickers and international crime are also targeting those supporting Catalan political opponents. This is an inferno, my nerves won't stand this unless the EAWs are thrown out.

@kezdugdale @C_Stihler_MEP Thats just childish nonsense , they are for all sorts of crimes , UK brought lots of UK Criminals back from Spain by this method , far far far more than any number of Terrorists brought back to the UK.

@kezdugdale @C_Stihler_MEP As I understand it ! This is a legal system issue ? Thank god nothing to do with politicians , as for Euro/arrest warrants are to tackle terrorism? We allow jihadi fighters to come and go as they please

@kezdugdale @C_Stihler_MEP You are incorrect Kezia, they were introduced to arrest criminals and that’s what she and her colleagues are!

@kezdugdale @C_Stihler_MEP What was the Scottish Parliament introduced for if it was not to enact legislation Allow the Court to determine the warrant based on law. Leave politics out of the judiciary is something we should all support.

@kezdugdale @C_Stihler_MEP She broke the law and must be locked up.

@kezdugdale @ChristinaSNP @C_Stihler_MEP European Arrest Warrants were introduced to bring all criminals to justice if they committed offences & then try skipping into another country ?

@kezdugdale @YesCymru @C_Stihler_MEP This is how Spain acts, as a fascist regime, will Europe help Catalan people and stop all this?, a friend of MHP Puigdemont , who was accompanying him in Finland, has just been arrested at Barcelona airport!

@kezdugdale @C_Stihler_MEP Although originally proposed as an anti-terrorist measure, the European Arrest Warrant has always been used for a wide range of ordinary crimes as it streamlined existing extradition procedures under the European Convention on Extradition.

@kezdugdale @C_Stihler_MEP Stop skirting round the edges Kez. RTs not being endorsements and all. Come out and say it. No one will think you’re jumping ship, just that you are a humanitarian not a hard nosed politician at heart! #blindunionism

@kezdugdale @C_Stihler_MEP We can’t support lawlessness. The individuals in question held an illegal vote in violation of a court order and declared independence under baseless circumstances.

@kezdugdale @europatweets @C_Stihler_MEP Bullshit. You are an ignorant swallowing nationalists’ propaganda. Catalan separatists have been free to advocate for an independent Catalonia since Spain is a democracy, so NO, they are NOT prosecuted for their political views.

@kezdugdale @C_Stihler_MEP Thank you Kezia for supporting human rights in Catalonia, without letting our positions on Scottish independence impact upon it. I wish more unionist Scottish politicians would stand so tall!

@kezdugdale @C_Stihler_MEP No, we were led to believe that "European Arrest Warrants "were introduced to tackle terrorism, in fact it is just another weapon to undermine free speech and orchestrated terrorist events are another weapon

@kezdugdale @C_Stihler_MEP ScotGov & those who don't believe in the UK-union are now getting on supporting her.
What's Scottish Labour's declared position on it? waiting for outcomes?
Meanwhile, Labour will be voting with Tories for a London-Labour Brexit.
Scotland voted to Remain.

@kezdugdale @C_Stihler_MEP The pacific catalan secessionists poor victims. Ponsati participated to unilateral violation of parliamentary statuatory and constitutional rules in catalan parliament in october 6 2017. She is not a victim. You help antidemocratIc methods by supporting people promoting them.

Spain has to stop to imprison ideas and believes. They suppose to convince the Catalans with facts not with violence and repression.

Credit where it's due, the overreach and evolution of the purpose of the European arrest warrant was seen at the outset by the eurosceptic right. A broken clock is right twice a day.
