Basque political prisoner Arnaldo Otegi punished in prison

Basque political leader and prisoner, Arnaldo Otegi, has been punished by the Prison of Logroño, where he is held for expressing his political opinions and organizing politically. 

Otegi managed to record and send a political message for the last Basque elections. The Prison considers this action a "very serious" breach of the security of the institution, as well as a "less serious" breach of his communication restrictions as prisoner. 

As result he is being punished with 12 days in isolation. However the punishment has been appealed and won't be applied immediately. He was also punished previously with temporary suspension of all his communications.
