Spain: ‘Wolf Pack’ rapists leave prison after sentence downgrade

Spain, Pamplona
June 23, 2018 at 00:51 GMT -00:00 · Published

Three of the five so-called 'Wolf Pack' rapists left Pamplona prison on Friday, one day after the Provincial Court of Navarre decided to release them on a €6,000 ($6,900) bail instead of enforcing the previous verdict of nine years in jail.

The other two left prison in Alcala-Meco on the same day. The conviction for sexual abuse rather than rape provoked numerous protests across the country.

The five, who were part of a WhatsApp group named 'Wolf Pack' or 'La Manada' in Spanish, were accused of the gang rape of an 18-year-old woman during the San Fermin 'Running of the Bulls' festival on July 7, 2016.
