Spain: Reform of Criminal Code introduces new terrorism offences

On 9 June, the Senate approved the reform of the Spanish Criminal Code.  The new Code will introduce the possibility for a judge to order a person who has served his sentence for a terrorism offence to be subject to “parole”, through restrictions similar to control orders, for up to ten years.

The Code also introduces new terrorism offences, including the public distribution or diffusion of messages or directives that, while not amounting to provocation, incitement or conspiracy, are apt to “increase the risk” of the commission of a terrorism offence.
