Spanish rapper's extradition barred amid free speech row

A Belgian court ruled on Monday against an extradition request from Spain for a rapper sentenced to prison for charges including insulting the monarchy, a spokesman for the public prosecutor in the city of Ghent said. The 24-year-old rapper, known as Valtonyc, and whose real name is Josep Miquel Arenas, fled to Belgium in May after being sentenced in Spain to three and a half years for also praising terror groups.
