No pardon for Orihuela poet

0

Spain’s Supreme Court has refused to revise the death sentence which was handed down to Orihuela poet, Miguel Hernandez, during the Franco regime. Hernandez died from tuberculosis in Alicante prison in 1942 aged 31, after his sentence was commuted to 30 years behind bars.

His family wanted the death sentence to be annulled but the Supreme Court ruled that the Historical Memory Law already recognises the sentence as ‘radically unfair’.
