Streets are on fire in Spain! The arrest of rap artist Hasel stirs the country

The National Court rejected Hasel’s request with the suspension of the execution of his sentence, and the two-year prison sentence he received in 2014 for using expressions praising the terrorist organizations GRAPO, ETA and Terra Lliure in some of his songs, was suspended at that time. He recalled that he was convicted of opposition and building raiding in 2018.

While Hasel’s arrest sparked a debate on freedom of expression regarding comments on social media in Spain, the government stated that some criminal issues such as “hate crimes, insulting the kingdom, attacking the Spanish flag, glorifying terrorism or attacking religious feelings” were excluded from the Penal Code. and announced that a work was initiated by the Ministry of Justice to abolish the imprisonment sentences for these.
