sacked Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont
Belgian lawyer Paul Bekaert said on Monday sacked Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont was in Belgium and that he had taken on the former regional president as a client. He would not confirm whether he was working with Puigdemont on an asylum claim.

"I can confirm Carles Puigdemont has appointed me as his legal representative, as he is currently in Belgium," Bekaert told Reuters in a telephone conversation.

"I'm his lawyer in case he needs me. At the moment there are no specific dossiers I am preparing for him," said the lawyer, who is based in Tielt in Western Belgium.
