Prison sentence against Francisco Solar and Mónica Caballero reduced to four and a half years
On December 16th 2016, the Supreme Court announced its decision on the appeal filed by the defense of anarchists Francisco Solar and Mónica Caballero, who were each sentenced to 12 years in prison at first instance.
Their sentence was reduced to 4½ years of imprisonment, in addition to 143,317 euros as compensation for damages caused by the explosion at the Basilica of the Pillar in Zaragoza in October 2013.
The two comrades have already served three years, so they have to spend a year and a half more in state cages. But there’s a possibility that, being foreigners, they’ll be released before the completion of the full term and get deported to Chile, since their sentence is now less than six years.
