The Prosecutor’s Office calls for 18 years in prison and a 10,800-euro fine for cyberactivist Joel Muñoz on the charges of cyber damage and disclosure of secrets in relation to the 1 October referendum


The Prosecutor’s Office accuses Muñoz (“Xelj” on Twitter) of working with Anonymous to target the websites and services of government and state institutions and Spanish companies between 1 October 2017 and 27 February 2018. The activist is also facing charges of cyber damage and threats against the State in another case. During the protests following the Supreme Court ruling, the National Police went to his house and seized IT tools. This was after Muñoz posted a video by Anonymous, which he had not made himself, speaking out against the Supreme Court’s conviction of the leaders of the 1 October referendum.
