The Prosecutor's Office of the National Hearing has asked for 36 years in prison for Iratxe Sorzabal, the Ethara Leader detained in 2015 together with David Pla, the last signing of Arnaldo Otegi for SORTU. Pla and Sorzabal formed the last recognizable dome of ETA and the security forces consider that they were two of the hoodeds that in 2012 read the statement of cessation of violence.
His luck after the arrest has not been a partner: He is released without open causes and she, in addition to fulfilling sentence in France, has been temporarily delivered to Spain to be judged by placing two pumps in Gijón who did not leave victims. Each one supposes a crime of havoc and a petition of 18 years in prison.
The two days of judgment have been concluded without references to that last stage of Sorzabal in the dome of the band's political apparatus, in which it ascended propelled by the succession of arrests of leaders. The facts that were judged were very earlier, of a first stage in the terrorist organization that led to the first arrest of it in 1997.
Together with the Prosecutor's Office, the Association of Victims of Terrorism (AVT) has exercised, which has requested the same sentence as the Prosecutor's Office. Initially, the accusation included that of belonging to ETA, but it was withdrawn because the French courts already condemned him for that crime. The prosecutor Emilio Miró and the Lawyer Carmen Thief of Guevara have dismissed Sorzabal's allegations of torture, which were archived.
The confession obtained by the Civil Guard, according to Sorzabal for the mistreatment, has not been taken into account as evidence because it was not ratified before the judge. Yes it weighs especially against her the kantada who sent the Etarra dome detailing what she had declared after her arrest and what had her activity in the band. Also there she was involved in the terrorist activities for which she is accused.
The defense has called for absolution, mainly, torture and questioning the transcendence of the Kantada. "This part has respect for the victims, I understand perfectly that there is to know the truth, that it has to be clarified, that it is necessary to judge events 25 years ago, I understand it perfectly, but so no".
If the court condemns Sorzabal, the Etarra will begin to fulfill the sentence when it finished with the imposed on France.Date Of Update: 08 February 2022, 18:58
