Local residents in Barcelona on Sunday gave their opinions on the arrest of exiled Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont, who was detained shortly before noon whilst crossing the German border from Denmark.

Opinions on Puigdemont's detainment were mixed, with one man named Ramon describing the situation as "very bad".

"They detained him and they will bring him to Spain and, here, they will probably send him to prison. I think that it is bad if he goes to prison," said Ramon.

A couple named Ernesto and Carmen called the arrest an "injustice" and described it as a present-day "Spanish inquisition".

However, another resident named Joana said that the police "did what they were supposed to do".

Former President of Catalonia Carles Puigdemont was moved to Neumuenster correctional facility after being taken into police custody in Schleswig-Holstein on Sunday.
