Pablo Hasél


Pablo Hasél had barricaded himself in the University of Lleida.

In his lyrics, Spanish rapper Pablo Hasél refers to the emeritus king Juan Carlos I as a “mafia boss” and a “drunk tyrant” and accuses the police of torturing and killing protesters and migrants.

Hashe was arrested this Tuesday by the Mossos d’Esquadra (the Catalan regional police) in the city of Lleida, about 150 km from Barcelona, ​​in the northeast of Spain, for “glorifying terrorism” and insulting the monarchy.

The police entered the University of Lleida to arrest him, where the musician (whose real name is Pablo Rivadulla Duro) had barricaded himself with a dozen supporters the day before, to avoid serving a prison sentence.

The rapper was sentenced to a sentence of nine months in prison for the crimes of extolling terrorism and insults to the Corona and state institutions for his letters and messages on Twitter in which he attacks the monarchy and the police.
