FOLLOWING reports of the first person in Spain to be charged under Spain’s new ‘gag law,’ another man, this time on the Costa Tropical, will have to pay a €90 fine for insulting the Motril Local Police on social media platform Facebook, using pictures of the officers.
Citizens’ Safety Councillor Maria Angeles Escamez, explained that a court has sentenced this man for “damaging the Local Police officers’ credibility and reputation,” and he will have to pay the fine off at €3 per day.
If the man refuses or fails to pay, Ms Escamez said, the court has sentenced him to deprive him from freedom for a day per two unpaid instalments. In addition, he will have to compensate the officer who filed the official report, with €100.
