Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez on Thursday denied plagiarizing his doctoral thesis and threatened legal action against media reporting that he copied and pasted sections of the text.

“The information that has appeared in certain media that claims the existence of plagiarism in the writing of my doctoral thesis is categorically false,” Sanchez wrote on Twitter. He said he’ll take legal action unless the reports are retracted.
