Spanish prosecutors are calling for extended prison sentences for all those allegedly involved with the 2017 terror assault in Barcelona and Cambrils.
The main sentence of 41 years has been asked for Mohamed Houli Chemlal, according to a document obtained by AFP on Thursday.
He’s accused of membership of a terrorist organization and ownership of explosives, among other fees.
A prison sentence of 36 years is also being hunted against Driss Oukabir, who’d leased in his name that the van used for its assault.
A sentence of 8 years for cooperation with a terrorist organization was asked contrary to Said Ben Iazza, who’d lent a van into the mobile.
Not one of the 3 people facing trial engaged directly in the strikes and prosecutors haven’t charged them with murder.
Sixteen people were killed and over 140 injured throughout the double assault on 17 and 18 August 2017.
A leasing van rammed to dozens of pedestrians in Barcelona’s favorite Rambla road, while five additional members of this mobile targeted more individuals later that night at the beachfront town of Cambrils.
Both of these terrorists have been killed by ancestral police officers.
The strikes came after an explosion in a home in Ripoll, allegedly employed by the terrorist cell to manufacture explosives.
The Sagrada Familia basilica and the Eiffel Tower in Paris had been cited as additional potential targets for the strikes.
The trial of the three defendants is expected to commence later this season.
Both people are suspected of belonging to some disbanded cell that’s been under evaluation since 2017.
