Spain: Rapper gets 1-yr sentence for tweets praising terror

/ 10:14 PM January 19, 2017

MADRID — Spain’s Supreme Court has sentenced a rapper musician to a year in prison for exalting terrorism and humiliating terrorism victims in Twitter messages.

In the tweets posted between 2013 and 2014, , 52, of the Def Con Dos rock band, talked of sending a cake bomb to former King Juan Carlos on his birthday. He also said some politicians made him long for a former leftist armed group.

Montana was also banned from holding public office for 6½ years.

The sentence Thursday followed an appeal by prosecutors of Montana’s acquittal by a lower court last year.
