The activist Marcel Guillén is sentenced to one and a half years in prison for blocking the Meridiana


The Criminal Court no. 16 of Barcelona has sentenced Marcel Guillén from Arran, who was arrested at the Meridiana intersection on 19 October, 2019, to a year and a half in prison for attempting to attack authority and to pay a fine of 360 euros as well as a compensation of 1,350 euros for a crime of causing minor injury to a Mosso d’Esquadra during one of the first roadblocks on the Meridiana in October 2019. The protests on the Meridiana intersection began in response to the judgement of the independence process. The defence announces that it will appeal the sentence before the Provincial Court of Barcelona.
