A Rapper locks himself in a university in Spain to avoid his Imprisonment

The Spanish rapper Pablo Hasel locked himself up this Monday in the rectory building of the University of Lleida (northeast) to avoid his foreseeable arrest and imprisonment for crimes of glorifying terrorism and insults to the crown.

As reported by the platform organized to support the rapper, with this measure they intend to avoid being imprisoned for what they consider an attack “on freedom of expression.”
Hasel himself indicated through social networks that he is “locked up with quite a few supporters” in the university, and that “they will have to burst it to arrest and imprison me.”
The singer made an appeal “in case someone wants to lend a hand” in defense of his cause and join the confinement.
Last Friday, the deadline granted by the Spanish National Court for the singer to voluntarily enter prison ended, although that day he already warned on his Twitter profile that they would have to “kidnap” him to enter jail.
Pablo Hasel was sentenced to nine months in prison, six years of disqualification and a fine of almost 30,000 euros for crimes of glorification of terrorism and insults against the Crown and against the institutions of the Spanish State.
Cases such as Hasel’s have generated a wide debate in Spain about the limits to freedom of expression, which the government of the socialist Pedro Sánchez has announced that it is studying a legal reform to restrict verbal excesses from being considered a crime in the context of artistic manifestations, cultural or intellectual.
His partner in the Executive, the left-wing formation Unidos Podemos, has requested a pardon for the rapper, who has received support from areas such as the intellectual, cultural, artistic and journalistic, with manifestos signed among others by the renowned filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar o the singer Joan Manuel Serrat, while organizations such as Amnesty International (AI) have considered the imprisonment unfair and disproportionate.
