The most wanted one has fallen, but there are others left. The State Security Forces and Corps follow the trail of some thirty escaped ETA members, some of them gunmen from the years of lead who now seek to go unnoticed in the daily life of distant countries.
The General Police Information Office of the National Police – in charge of the fight against terrorism – collaborates with police and intelligence services from numerous countries in the world in search of these terrorists, whose arrest could help clarify the more than 300 attacks that have not been resolved.
Out of that thirty requisitions in force, fifteen claims weigh against refugees in Venezuela, according to ABC sources have informed police. The regime of Nicolás Maduro has refused for a long time to hand over any claimed and grants protection to the escaped ETA members. A political barrier that prevents them from being held accountable before the courts.
One of the ETA members hiding in Venezuela would be the bloodthirsty José Ignacio de Juana Chaos, who participated in the murders of 25 people in only thirteen months, between June 1985 and July 1986. The terrorist was released in 2008 after serving 21 years in prison even though he was sentenced to more than 3,000 years of grief.
After settling in Ireland, he fled again to avoid the claims of the National Court, which again investigated him for extolling terrorism in a letter. When the gunman felt that Ireland was no longer a safe hiding place, he went to Venezuela, where several media outlets located him in 2014 and 2015.
Among the refugee terrorists in Venezuela are also Arturo Cubillas, who collaborates with the Maduro government and who is accused of organizing joint training of the FARC and ETA; or the historical José Luis Eciolaza Galán, alias «Dienteputo», a former leader of the band that fled in the nineties.
The lack of collaboration of some countries in our environment such as Belgium is another obstacle. There is Natividad Jáuregui, an Etarra from the years of lead to which Belgium has been sheltering since 2013. The Belgian authorities have refused on three occasions to hand over the holster, who enjoys an ordinary life in front of a catering company. Jáuregui was prosecuted last year for the machine gunning of the national policeman Francisco Francés Garzón – who was twenty-nine years old, wife and two daughters – on the cold morning of April 9, 1981.
Other fugitives against whom requisitions remain active would be located in Mexico, Cuba (there are three ETA locates), Cape Verde, Uruguay and France, where about five terrorists are located and that has long ceased to be the sanctuary where terrorists campaigned at ease. That's where Josu Ternera fell yesterday, the one that never seemed to fall. (tagsToTranslate) venezuela (t) terrorists
