I have corrected the mistake and now it goes like this:

def White_Barren_Pawn 
checkaleap #0 #1 0 1 and cond empty #0 not capture empty #1
or and checkaleap #0 #1 -1 1 or checkaleap #0 #1 1 1 
cond empty #0 capture islower space #1;
def White_Barren_Pawn-Range merge leaps #0 1 0 leaps #0 1 1;

def Black_Barren_Pawn
checkaleap #0 #1 0 -1 and cond empty #0 not capture empty #1
or and checkaleap #0 #1 -1 -1 or checkaleap #0 #1 1 -1 
cond empty #0 capture isupper space #1;

But during my tests I came across the fact that a joker imitating a barren_pawn does not have the ability to capture another joker (although it is fine when capturing a knight).
