Spain’s National Court has sentenced a man to seven years in prison for threatening to kill Spanish Prime Minister, Pedro Sanchez.

Manuel Murillo, 66, posted messages on social media with words threatening Sanchez.

Police raided Murillo’s home and seized seven prohibited firearms, including an automatic rifle.

The court ruled that Murillo had decided that the solution to produce a change in the Spanish political situation was to cause the death of the prime minister.

The judges also said that Murillo’s seized weapon is an indication of high danger.
