Spain’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.
One judge, however, disagreed with the decision to sentence Hasel to jail. She considered that none of the tweets were “a call for violence,” according to a court document. This is not the first time that Hasel has been condemned for glorifying terrorism.
In 2014, the National Audience sentenced him to two years jail for the content of some of his songs. He did not serve time, as first-time offenders of non-violent crimes with a sentence of no more than two years don’t usually spend time behind bars in Spain. But this time round, if the Supreme Court confirms Friday’s sentence, he will be sent to prison for four years to serve both sentences.
The news comes just over a week after the Supreme Court upheld a three-and-a-half-year jail sentence for another rapper, Valtonyc, for lyrics they said glorified terrorism and insulted the crown. The sentences have raised concern over free speech in Spain, but terror victim groups argue they do not want to see violence trivialised.

Suge Knight sentenced to 28 years in prison after pleading no contest to voluntary murder
American rap mogul, Suge Knight has been sentenced to 28 years in prison after pleading no contest to voluntary manslaughter.
In January 2015, the former Death Row Records CEO was arrested and charged with murder after he was involved in a hit-and-run at a Los Angeles restaurant parking lot. Knight allegedly got into a confrontation with two men while on the set of the N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton.
According to prosecutors, Knight proceeded to follow the men to a nearby burger restaurant, where he ran over them with his car. One of the men struck, Terry Carter, died from his injuries. The other, Cle Sloan,, suffered injuries to his head and foot. Knight fled the scene of the incident before authorities arrived.
Knight, who turned 53 in April, had been facing the possibility of life in prison. His no contest plea came days before his trial was scheduled to begin on Monday (September 24). Knight will get credit for the three-and-a-half years he already served while awaiting the trial.
Aside from the murder charge, Knight was also facing a second-degree robbery charge for an incident in 2014 in which he and comedian Katt Williams are accused to have stolen a paparazzi’s camera. In 2017, he was indicted on charges of “threatening death or bodily injury” against Staight Outta Compton director F. Gary Gray, to which Knight pleaded not guilty.
Knight was previously sentenced to nine years in prison in 1997 after violating his probation stemming from an earlier assault charge. After being granted early release in 2001, he was sent back to prison in 2003 after assaulting a parking attendant.
Knight, who has experienced a series of health issues in recent years, told the judge he expects to die in prison.
