Palma/Madrid.—The Partido Popular has drafted new laws against public protests, a move which the opposition has criticised as undemocratic. If approved, the new law would introduce heavy fines for people who participate in unauthorised protests, publish images of police or interrupt public events.

If the law would come into force, people demonstrating near the country’s parliament without permission could be fined up to 600,000 euros. While insulting a police officer during a protest could cost up to 30,000 euros.
