Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This just in (El Pais):
The [National] Court sentences Otegi to 15 months in Prison, but the [State] Prosecutor will not request that he actually be sent to Prison

The Prosecutor announces that, for "reasons of prudence", the execution of the sentence will not be requested [...] given that the ruling can be appealed and the imprisonment is for less than 2 years.

Holy shit!

Just before the ceasefire, the Attorney General forced the previous Prosecutor at the Audiencia Nacional to resign, because of their constant disagreements. The timing was retrospectively criticized by the PP as layig the groundwork for releasing Otegi on bail after the ceasefire. This latest decision will only give the PP additional reason to protest.

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
