While Hasel’s arrest sparked a debate on freedom of expression in Spain about comments made on social media, the government had to prevent some criminal matters, such as “hate crimes, insulting the kingdom, attacking the Spanish flag, glorifying terrorism or attacking religious feelings”, the Criminal Code. He announced that a study was initiated by the Ministry of Justice in order to stay outside and to abolish the imprisonment sentences foreseen for them.
