Extraordinary Case No. 20907/2017, brought before the Spanish Supreme Court, was the criminal case against 12 people charged by the Public Prosecutor’s Office with the crimes of rebellion, disobedience and embezzlement of public funds, for which it had requested 177 years’ imprisonment.
In addition to the charges filed by the Public Prosecutor’s Office, there were two further prosecutions. Firstly, the Solicitor General of the State was accusing them of the crime of sedition, which involves a ‘public and tumultuous uprising’ and carries penalties of up to 15 years in prison. Secondly, the far-right political party VOX accused of even higher penalties, adding to the crime of rebellion the crime of criminal organisation.
