Spain’s proposed new public security law introduces hefty fines for unauthorised protests and allows for the summary expulsion of illegal migrants.
The lower house of parliament approved the law - dubbed the “Ley Mordaza” or “Gag Law” by its critics - with the votes of the ruling Partido Popular  which has a majority in the assembly. All opposition parties voted against the bill. The bill, which was first introduced in 2013, now goes to the senate, Spain’s upper house of parliament, at the beginning of next year for final approval.
