ELDH concerned about the illegal refusal to order the release of Basque prisoners

European legal experts express their preoccupation towards the measures that are applied to Basque prisoners: The Association of European Lawyers for Democracy and Human Rights has urged the Spanish government to abolish the so-called “Parot Doctrine” and to release the prisoners whose sentences have been lengthened and also those who suffer from serious and incurable illnesses.

Abertzale Left about Iosu Uribetxeberria’s parole

With the confirmation on the part of the Spanish National Court for the parole for Josu Uribetxeberria:

1. In the first place, we consider it to be good news that Josu Uribetxeberria, a seriously ill prisoner, has been released. Good news for all of the people and agents who want to build a scenario without the violations of rights, since the release of Uribetxerria signifies the end of a cruel violation of rights.

2. However, we also wish to criticize the attitude of the government of the Popular Party. The decisions taken by the government and their diverse groups have led Uribetxerria to this extreme situation.

3. Just as we have denounced on several occasions, the government of the PP has insisted on the violation of rights, with the objective of conditioning and blocking the resolution process.

4. So, we call on the Popular Party to stop utilizing the penitentiary policy as an instrument against the resolution process, annulling all of the measures of exception, freeing all of the ill prisoners and repatriating all of the Basque political prisoners.

A New Political Course, Summer review

A new political course begins in the Basque Country. A political course that will be important for the resolution of the conflict. All of the actors must take steps towards a definitive and democratic resolution to the conflict. A resolution which must be based on the respect for the word of the citizens of the Basque Country. And it is time to pass from a unilateral phase to a multilateral phase, where all of the actors take positive steps, where among everyone a decisive dialogue can be dealt with, which brings a just and lasting peace to our people.

We have to redouble our efforts to achieve the release of Uribetxeberria and the other 13 gravely ill prisoners.

In the first place, the Abertzale Left wishes to applaud the attitude and decision of Uribetxeberria.  Through the denial of his human rights, the Spanish state has wanted to give Uribetxeberria the death penalty, but Iosu has held on to the defense of the right to be able to live with dignity. The hunger strike which has gone one for over two weeks as well as the decision to abandon it, are a sign of that.
