With total clarity, the current president of the provincial audience of Madrid and former magistrate instructor of the national audience, Juan Pablo González, said that ETA has committed crimes of humanity since birth. "He carried out ethnic cleansing in the Basque Country." "There were many thousand, perhaps even hundreds of thousands the Basques who had to leave the Basque Country, significantly altering the electoral census and the political and social future of an autonomous community."
González was the author of the first and until now only auto processing against ETA leaders for crimes of humanity. And he has participated in a round table held on Thursday in the world and organized by the Luis Porero Foundation and the Dignity and Justice Association on crimes of humanity.
The day started with a few words from the director of the world, Francisco Rosell, who stressed that from the newspaper "we always wanted him not to forget the victims' voice." He recalled the figure of murdered Luis Porter, chief prosecutor of Andalusia, in the struggle for human rights. "Luis did not kill him for being a particular but by what he defended: democratic values and law." And he alerted the media: "We can not fall into a case in a crime of oblivion, which is already occurring." "ETA is having a dessert victory as a result of its political agreements, it is achieving its commitments at the expense of those who died." "The world is always the house of the victims," he finished.
Magistrate John Pablo González explained why he considers that there is still impunity in the actions of ETA: "There are more than 350 crimes without clarifying, they are in the most absolute impunity. But there is also another impunity: moral, political and social".
He explained that in 2015 he reactivated an ancient complaint from the Luis Porter Foundation against ETA by genocide and crimes of humanity. He managed to carry out a car processing for crimes of humanity against leaders of ETA that has been paralyzed in the criminal penalty room for almost six years.
"It was the first time that ETA crimes were rated as crimes of humanity, it was a true violence of persecution, of generalized and systematic attacks against a sector of the population. The victims were chosen in consideration of being members of the groups submitted To persecution by politics and ideology. " "It's about crimes not only against life but against the international community."
He denounced that his instruction suffered many obstacles and that there was no collaboration on the part of the French judicial authorities, who did not attend the rogatory commissions, including the last, on Josu Veal. "After almost six years, it has not been celebrated as necessary judgment against ETA leaders for crimes of humanity".
"An ethnic cleansing was carried out in the Basque Country, there were many thousands, perhaps up to hundreds of thousands the Basques who had to leave the Basque Country, significantly altering the electoral census and the political and social evolution of an autonomous community "He added. "And all this with a political and social impunity."
The magistrate denounced that this situation has caused that "the hegemony of nationalism has been accepted as inevitable in the Basque Country and has been condemned to irrelevance to those who made the most end of terror."
"The slogan that ETA has been defeated is an organized political lie that does not correspond to reality. It continues to exist with another name, with other methods. But it continues to act. It is fundamental that a story about the crimes of humanity becomes configured. In ETA. In Spain, a Nuremberg trial on ETA humanity crimes was necessary, which condemns its totalitarian ideology. "
He was the lawyer Miguel Ángel Rodríguez who put a dose of optimism before the next judicial actions against ETA. Rodríguez is the lawyer of dignity and justice that has led these actions on crimes of humanity and that also directs the complaint against ETA leaders for the murder of Magistrate Querol Lombardero.
"ETA has managed to expel from the Basque Country to between 60,000 and 200,000 human beings, it is of disproportionate violence, in the concept of international legislation there is no doubt that ETA complies to be considered author of crimes of humanity, because these crimes do not He is committed only one State, as the Treaty of Rome points out. The United Nations Human Rights Committee recognizes these situations. "
In a very technical intervention, Rodriguez explained why the fact of the expulsions held by 200,000 of Basques supposes a crime of humanity. He said that this situation has no Paragon with any member State of the European Union. "It was very clear the message that ETA launched these citizens to leave": or with them, or outside, or dead.
"ETA has the departure of the lost humanity, although it seems that no. In all the scenarios of internationals against this type of crime, initially, with the short lights, it seems that they will not get ahead. But it ends up spending time and International logic is implemented. We saw him with Milosevic, "he said with hope. "If we could leave the political cards aside, the ideologies, we would see it all clear and would move forward with more decision," he defended.
The lawyer recalled by way of example, communications of ETA in which he made it clear after committing attacks than the one who was not with them "must leave the Basque territory."
"It only subtracts a solution: leave. Otherwise, little by little eliminated one by one or in groups," he said in one of his public writings ETA.
Finally, Daniel goalie, president of dignity and justice, tireless instigator of all acting against ETA in court. "Now ETA is a hidden terrorist organization, but with a more political mask such as Bildu, who has committed the most serious crimes, those of humanity". He assured that ETA could not assume a conviction for crimes of humanity "because it would be discredited internationally. And in that we are working. There is already a car of processing at the audience for almost six years, paralyzed, although nobody has Resorted, not the Prosecutor's Office or the ETA heads indicated. " Goalkeeper showed him the doubts of the date on which he can be considered that ETA's action can be prosecuted for crimes of humanity. The audience ruled that since 2004, since that crime was incorporated into the Criminal Code.
"The difference is to judge five leaders of ETA or 50. Since the birth of ETA or since 2004, Spain incorporates the crime of humanity?" He wondered. And he noticed that the association of him will carry out actions against ETA also in other countries.Date Of Update: 26 November 2021, 12:38
