The PP and the PSOE are mutually accused of whitening terrorism and use the pain of the victims

The PSOE and the PP celebrate the tenth anniversary of ETA end accusing once more of "Whitening Terrorism" and "Use the pain of victims" moved, both, by political interests. Signatories the two of the Covenant for freedoms and against terrorism, both formations now do not hesitate to face unable to demonstrate any tuning.

The last episode of disagreement has occurred on the proposal of the popular ones to create a special prosecutor's office that investigates the acts of drafting of terrorism, the violation of the rights of victims and incitement to their contempt or humiliation. A registered proposal eight months ago in the Senate and that Monday has been submitted to debate in the High Chamber Justice Commission.

The PP, by mouth of Senator Rafael Hernando, maintains 10 years after ETA announced the end of violence "not everything has ended", because "the political and social framework" that gave support to the band "still survives and homage To his murderers ".

"There are people in the Basque Country," he said, "who are articulating a rebirth of the feeling that gave rise to ETA." "Now," he has insisted, "we return to see acts of political violence with organized bushings similar to those who 40 years ago were the seed of ETA."

For the PP the acts of contrition of Arnaldo Otegi, former band leader, "are partial" and have to do with the current situation of Bildu and their relations with the government of Pedro Sánchez, but avoid the resounding condemnation of the murders and They do not have a desire to collaborate to clarify the more than 300 crimes whose authorship has not been clarified.

The popular emphasizes that the "hinting of the gunmen directly against the memory of victims, democracy and suffering". For the PP, tributes to ETA prisoners are "acts of violence" that justify the creation of a Special Prosecutor's Office dedicated to persecute them and also to ensure that memory "does not dwell for criteria of political opportunism".

The proposal has been rejected by the PSOE and its parliamentary allies. Socialists have argued that, with it, the PP tries to "use terrorism as a weapon of political confrontation" and "the pain of victims for the benefit of a disgusting strategy".

The PSOE ensures that the acts of tribute to the prisoners of ETA are "miserable", but considers that to cope with them, it is enough for the security and justice forces to do their work and the Basque society and Navarre gives them their backs. An argument that the popular refers alluding to the fifth point of the anti-terrorist pact, according to which "if new criminal forms or attitudes and behaviors that constituted collaboration or incitement to terrorism demand legal reforms," the signatory parties are "committed to promoting them from mutual agreement".
