Finally, the nearly half a hundred lawyers accused of belonging to the "in front of makos" have recognized that they were working under the orders of ETA. For some, jail is the least of your problems. It is the case of Amaia Izko , council member of EH Bildu in Pamplona, not to step on the prison but may not continue in office after being sentenced to three years of disqualification.
Izco is one of the 47 people who this Monday have recognized that collaborating with ETA or even belonged to its structure. They were the nexus between the management and prisoners that allowed the terrorist group to maintain their union. Following the agreement reached between the defenses and the allegations —Prosecutor's office, AVT and Dignity and Justice— the penalties have been reduced greatly, so that the bulk of the defendants will avoid jail.
That does not mean that there will be no consequences for the radicals. One of the most disadvantaged is your own Izko, who has accepted a sentence of a year and a half of prison and to three years of disqualification from office or public employment. For this reason, you should leave the seat he occupies in the town Hall of Pamplona, according to have confirmed sources of the AVT.
Among the damned there are other well-known faces in the political field, as the attorney Iñaki Goioaga , who was a senator for EH Bildu. Its designation was produced in 2013, and caused an earthquake in the basque Parliament. The PP, which defended that it was producing a new humiliation to the victims of terrorism, withdrew its own candidate, Joan Iturmendi.Updated Date: 17 September 2019, 04:01
