A Spanish rapper due to begin a controversial nine-month jail sentence barricaded himself inside a Catalan university to avoid arrest on Monday. Pablo Hasel, who is known for his radical leftist views, has been convicted for glorifying terrorism, slander and libel after he attacked the monarchy and accused police of killing and torturing immigrants in a string of tweets.

Spain issues international arrest warrant for rapper , 24, convicted of 'glorifying terrorism' and insulting the crown as he goes on the run. Valtonyc disappeared instead of starting three-and-a-half-year jail term today. He left a cryptic tweet last night indicating he was not prepared to surrender. Spain has issued a national, international and EU arrest warrant Thursday against the rapper Valtonyc who may have fled the country just as he was expected to enter jail. Jose Miguel Arenas Beltran, better known as Valtonyc, was found guilty last year of glorifying terror, insulting the king and issuing threats in his lyrics.

A Spanish court has issued an international arrest warrant for a rapper who is thought to have fled the country to avoid jail for songs that threatened a politician, glorified terrorism and insulted the crown. Josep Miquel Arenas, better known as Valtònyc, was due to begin his three-and-a-half-year jail term on Thursday after his sentence was upheld by Spain ’s highest court in February. But on Wednesday afternoon, the Mallorcan rapper wrote a tweet suggesting he had decided to disobey the judges.

The Spanish government said last week it planned to reduce the penalty for "crimes of expression" such as the glorification of terrorism, hate speech and insults to the crown and religion, in cases that involve artistic or cultural activities. Besides attacks on the monarchy, Pablo Hasel's tweets and lyrics accused police of torturing and killing demonstrators and migrants.

Spain's freedom of speech controversy

By James Badcock, Madrid

Pablo Hasel will become the highest-profile person to have actually gone to prison for a speech crime in Spain in recent years. But his case is only one of many that have caused controversy.

Several other performers and bloggers have fallen foul of the criminal offence of "glorifying terrorism", which is framed so broadly that any example of justifying a terrorist act, even if it took place a long time ago, can lead to a conviction.

In 2018 the rapper Valtònyc had his jail term confirmed by Spain's Supreme Court, for glorifying terrorism and insulting the monarchy with his promises of bullets for right-wing politicians and a noose for the king.

The year before, Twitter user Cassandra Vera had been sentenced to prison for merely making jokes about the 1973 assassination of Gen Franco's number two, Adm Luis Carrero Blanco, in a bomb attack by Eta Basque militants, although she was acquitted on appeal.

The government has promised to review the law. The legal framing of speech crimes might seem a dry, academic subject, but an explosion of graffiti artwork in Spanish cities in defence of Hasel in recent days suggests that many among Spain's youth believe there is a real issue of freedom at stake.

In one message Pablo Hasel expressed support for Victoria Gómez, a jailed member of the banned Marxist group Grapo. Elsewhere he accused King Felipe VI and his father Juan Carlos, the former king, of several crimes.

Hasel's real name is Pablo Rivadulla Duro. He also backs the campaign for Catalan independence.

In 2017, Catalan separatists triggered Spain's biggest political crisis since the death of fascist dictator Francisco Franco in 1975. Sunday's Catalan election gave the separatists a majority in the regional parliament.

In 2018 rapper Valtònyc was jailed for three-and-a-half-years in Spain, but he fled to Belgium, where a court decided not to extradite him. He remains wanted under a Spanish arrest warrant.
