Royal insulters get off with reduced fines


TWO people have been fined €380 each by the National Court for insulting and threatening the King of Spain and his family.

One was sentenced for insulting the royals on Twitter and the other for carrying a poster stating ‘death to the Bourbons’ at a republican rally.

The sentences were given after an agreement was reached with the Public Prosecutor’s Office, which initially requested fines of €6,500.
