Rapper Pablo Hasel gets jailed after the words about the king


Demonstrations in Spain have been going on in several cities for five nights. It is basically about the country’s freedom of speech after the controversial verdict against rapper Pablo Hasel, whose real name is Pau Rivadulla Duró.

Thousands of people gathered in Barcelona this weekend. The protests that began calmly developed and towards the end of the weekend people barricaded themselves at Placa University. 14 people were arrested on Sunday – which means that the total sum is over 100.

Insulted the king

In his lyrics and on Twitter, Pablo Hasel has, according to the Spanish legal system, glorified terrorism, by giving his support to Victoria Gómez, leader of the Marxist group Grapo.

The rapper is also convicted of accusing King Felipe VI and his father Juan Carlos of several crimes – including torturing and killing protesters and migrants. He also compared Juan Carlos to a mafia leader.

For that, the rapper is sentenced to nine months in prison and the equivalent of 270,000 Swedish kronor in fines.

The verdict has been criticized in many places in Spain and Amnesty International has also tweeted that the verdict is “terrible news for freedom of expression in Spain”.

The Spanish government announced last week that parts of the sentence covered by the Freedom of Expression Act would be removed, but it has not announced when.

Pablo Hasel, 32

Pablo Hasel, whose real name is Pau Rivadulla Duró, is a Spanish rapper, writer, poet and political activist. In his lyrics and posts on Twitter, he often gives his support to opinions far to the left. Among other things, he has paid tribute to Victoria Gómez, leader of the Marxist group Grapo.

Pablo Hasel, 33, was convicted last week of glorifying terrorism and insulting King Felipe IV and his father Juan Carlos.

The prison sentence against the rapper was carried out on Thursday in connection with the verdict being announced and Pablo Hasel has not yet commented on it. But before the trial, he wrote on Twitter that he would take his punishment “with his head held high”, if he was convicted.

– We can not allow them to dictate what we should say, what we feel and what we do.
