Pablo Hasél

Pablo was arrested on February 9, 2021 and convicted by the Spanish court for song lyrics and tweets in which he was supposedly supporting terrorism, along with insulting the Crown and state institutions. Many of the tweets were actually about police violence and a lack of accountability in that area. For example, he wrote that Joseba Arregi, a former commander of ETA, had been murdered by the police agents who tortured him. This is an historic fact, but him pointing it out was part of the evidence they used to claim he supported terrorism.

Oleg Sentsov

Oleg was senteced to 20 years in prison after a trial described by Amnesty International as “redolent of Stalinist-era show trials.”

Sentsov and his co-defendant Alexander Kolchenko, who received a 10-year sentence, were accused of planning terrorist acts in Crimea after the peninsula was annexed by Russia.
