Women face jail for ‘religious hate crime’ over giant plastic vagina protest that ‘mocked’ the Easter procession –

According to the order, Europa Press reports, the court considers that the right to freedom of expression invoked by the accused “is not absolute, but has its limits on fundamental rights, including ideological and religious freedom.”

“We accept criticism, and we believe it is necessary, but always as part of a dialogue, not in vexation, mockery or offence,” said Poland Castellanos, president of the AEAC.

If found guilty of “religious hate crime” the women could face a fine and a prison sentence of up to 18 months, although in Spain a jail sentence of up to two years for a first offender is likely to be suspended.
