After yesterday’s vote (311 against, 321 in favour, 24 abstentions) in EU Parliament and the weapons stealing in France, the Government has said that everything points to ETA, but that they have to wait for the French Police to end their investigations. The two cars used in the robbery have been found in France. They were burned, something that is not helping in the search of the terrorists.
Zapatero has announced consequences because of the weapons’ rob but has said that the negotiations continue. Batasuna -ETA’s political ally- has asked what consequences he is referring himself to and accuses the President of irresponsibility.
A dangerous ETA terrorist, Iragi, sentenced to 50 years in jail because of the murder of Public Prosecutor Daniel Portero and Medical Colonel Antonio Muñoz Cariñanos, has been judged. The National Court has considered that his menaces to three Penitenciary Institutions’ Civil Servants cannot be judged as criminal terrorist offences, but rather as simply administrative infractions. Iragi told them “You are going to pay for this very highly”.
A member of Askatasuna, Jon Enparatza -left-, has been detained by Basque Police because he did not present himself to declare before the National Court. They consider National Court the National Spanish Guantánamo.
