The Supreme Court dismisses the appeal presented by Pablo Hasél and confirms his conviction for glorification of terrorism and lèse majesté


The Court confirms the National High Court’s ruling sentencing the singer to nine months in prison for the crimes of glorification of terrorism, lèse majesté and slander against the State Security Forces and Corps for 64 posts on Twitter and songs on Youtube about members of GRAPO and ETA. The decision is not unanimous: two of the five judges on the court dissent, arguing that some of the statements against the King and the police forces can be covered by freedom of expression.
