The Penitentiary Supervision Court of the High National Court has decided to grant a release from prison for 12 days to the former treasurer of the Popular Party, Luis Bárcenas. A permit which, in the best case, you will be able to benefit from from April. On the other hand, he refuses progression to the third year and the application of article 100.2.
