‘Gag law’ arrives in Motril with fine for insulting police


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.
