Diego Yllanes, bere kontrako epaiketan, artxiboko irudi batean.

Diego Yllanes was sentenced to 12 and a half years in prison for the murder of Nagore Laffage on 7 July 2008 in San Fermín. He served his sentence in 2020 and in a few months he claimed the right to be forgotten. The National Court of Spain renounces the petition and decides that freedom of information and expression prevails.

In the news of Nagore Laffage, Yllanes inevitably appears. That’s why Yllanes has asked Google, then the Spanish Data Protection Agency and finally the Spanish National Audience to remove some news about it. He argues, among other things, that he did not commit sexual crimes, but that some media disseminated his relationship with this type of crime. Incorrect data provision argues that they infringe fundamental data protection rights.

Google and the Spanish Data Protection Agency rejected the petition, among other things, for the public interest of the news, its similarity with other crimes committed subsequently and for a murder of great impact. However, he was told that he could request the modification of news with errors.

Lack of evidence

After the refusal, he appealed to the National Court. However, the National Court has found that freedom of information and expression prevails: "The complainant has not provided evidence of the notable inaccuracies in this news." It has also addressed the arguments of Google and the Spanish Data Protection Agencies.

Yllanes also asks that phrases such as the man who killed NL and the killer of NL be removed. According to the National Court, this type of sentence is not personal information of Yllanes, so it waives its request.
