Spanish rapper sentenced to prison for glorifying terror on Twitter

5a9a69df98407.PNGSpain’s top criminal court sentenced a rapper, Pablo Rivadulla to two years in prison for Twitter posts and a song it said glorified terrorism


Though one of the three judges who oversaw his case made known her disagreement with the sentence.


In its statement, the National Audience said it had analysed 64 of Hasel’s Twitter posts as well as a song’s lyrics and found that put together, they not only went against state authorities but alluded “to the necessity to take a step further using violent behaviour, including using terrorism.”


The court gave as an example one 2016 tweet in which the rapper attached a photo of a member of the GRAPO, a once violent far-left group.  Hasel wrote: “Protests are necessary, but not enough, we support those who went beyond,” the statement read.
