The National Court suspends Pablo Hasél’s first conviction and he is not sent to prison


This first conviction, now suspended by the court, entailed a two-year prison sentence and disqualification from public office for the crime of glorification of terrorism. The sentence was confirmed in 2015 by the Supreme Court, but it is not until 2019 that the National High Court rules on the suspension thereof. The Prosecutor’s Office does not oppose the suspension because Hasél did not have a criminal record when he was convicted in 2014 for his songs on YouTube about the actions and members of GRAPO and Terra Lliure, among others. The suspension comes with the condition that if Hasél re-offends, he will automatically be sent to prison.
