Oihana Garmendia, Haimar Altuna, Oihana San Vicente, Carlos Saez de Egilaz, Felipe San Epifanio and Antton Lopez are the six people involved. Europe Press has announced that AVT accuses Basque political prisoners of organising 120 welcome between 2016 and 2020.

For this reason, he asks for the penalty of six years in prison for each for the “constitution of the criminal band” and three for the “permanent humiliation against the victims and exaltations of terrorism”. According to the AVT, “the defendants are the members of the Sortu Prisoners Committee who organised the Kalera initiative, and the role of the welcome was “to legitimize ETA and maintain the cohesion of ETA prisoners and their allegiances”.

According to the AVT, “these acts are very harmful to the victims of terrorism”, because they have a great psychological impact on them and because the victims feel abandoned.

The institutions of the Abertzale left supported by the prisoners for many years organized welcoming acts of prisoners when they left prison. In recent years, however, these welcome are not public and when they are performed they are done privately. The Abertzale left explained that in this way I wanted to show respect for the pain the victims can feel and that it was another gesture towards the new environment that underlies the solution of the conflict in Euskal Herria. The Group of Basque Political Prisoners pointed out in November 2021 that it understood that many people felt pain with welcome and that, consequently, they would end the street’s welcome, which would be done privately and with discretion.
