During the years that Spain was under the control of General Franco, Freemasonry was a "crime" and Masons were imprisoned for a term of years equal to the number of Masonic degrees possessed by the "guilty one."
Some people say that Franco started a persecution against the masons because previously he tried to enter and was blackballing....but I think that the real reason was the one that you say.....As a curious data, his brother was, in fact, a mason.
