recently. i always thrived in group. faced with the people filtration of flowers peace and human rights dr congo mockers the museum's recent. for more let's bring in deputy is political correspondent simon young to break down what exactly has been said here so i mean jail does not have it does not appear to have dampened his fear i mean a pretty defiant message that he has that he's issued there where does he go from here simon first of all no way because he has been told that he has to stay in germany and near enough to the court that he can present himself there if the court wants to speak to him because of course the extradition proceedings are still continuing as you mentioned they thrown out the idea that he could be extradited to spain on rebellion they say there is no equivalent potential cho agenda german law
3:03 pm
but the. question of the misuse of public funds in order to finance that controversial referendum on catalonia independence last year that that charge remains and is equivalent to something under german law so they're going to be looking at that it could take a few days even to bring that into the cools and. the extradition has to happen within sixty days but there's a long way for mr bush to mount to go he could still appeal if he is told that he has to go to spain he could appeal up to the german constitutional court and even to the european court so there's some way for this thing to run yes ok so extradition still on the table apparently he has to stay in germany to know where in germany he will be we don't know that yet he was hold a press conference late it's day but mr hu just a moment spokesman says that he's now canceled that so we don't know when the
3:04 pm
details of that will emerge but i imagine he'll have to stay as i said somewhere where he can report to police and make himself available for this call to rights in the north of germany where does all of this leave germany in terms of its relations with spain who really wants him back that's right well germany berlin has been a little bit troubled by this whole. proceedings so far in the over the months of this story with their cars perched mont in this tended to back the madrid line and say that you know madrid's spain's procedures must be followed says spain's judicial process must be followed and today the government spokeswoman was very well you know this has never been a matter for the government it's all it's a purely legal question and this sort of keeping their distance from it i think they're a bit relieved in the sense that they've cleared up one point from this to put it to moan at least in the short term he can't be tried in spain for rebellion and
3:05 pm
that is the really troubling one for him because that is a choice that could have put him behind bars in spain if convicted for four decades or so a bit of a victory and then for him and everything that apart we know that the independence referendum that he spearheaded that it really polarized catalonia and he saw some of those deep refs coming out in the region to be you know how cattle lands are are reacting to this ruling now today well that i've seen a little bit of reaction. on the web you know with people saying you know they were surprised frankly by this ruling by the court and i think that's true of a lot of people in germany as well that weren't expecting quite as clear cut a case and relatively quickly obviously has been welcomed by mr bush to months supporters the madrid government obviously sees it wrong the differently they said well they respect and accept this decision by the german court but the justice minister also said you know some decisions by courts we prefer more the novice i
