Valtonyc Jailed for 42 months for “Insulting the Crown”

The Spanish Supreme Court has delivered a sentence of three and a half years in prison to Majorcan rapper Valtònyc. A year ago, the Spanish Court declared the artist guilty of supporting terrorism and insulting the Spanish crown. The sentence also included a compensation payment of 3,000 euros to the president of the Cercle Balear Foundation, Jorge Campos Asensi, for threats. The Supreme Court was the last instance of appeal.

The reason for the accusations was the song No to the borbón in which supposedly attacks against the Spanish monarchy and demonstrates support for the Basque seperatists group ETA and the long defunct anti fascist group GRAPO.
