Madrid, Feb 19 (AFP/APP): Spanish rapper Pablo Hasel was imprisoned this week over tweets praising convicted terrorists, although he was also sanctioned for accusing the police of torture and the Crown of corruption.
Since his jailing on Tuesday, Spain has seen nightly demonstrations which have deteriorated into running battles between police and protesters. At issue are more than 60 tweets published between 2014 and 2016 for which he was given a nine-month prison sentence for “glorification of terrorism” that was handed down in 2018.
He was also fined some 25,000 euros ($30,000) for insults, libel and slander for tweets likening former king Juan Carlos I to a mafia boss and accusing police of torturing and killing demonstrators and migrants. – GRAPO and ETA.
