On Monday, Section 2 of the Álava Provincial Court granted Otxandiano and De Miguel a period of three days to voluntarily enter prison. If not, the judge stated that he would give arrest warrants to State security forces. Both have entered before the end of the deadline.

The Tribunal rejects all requests for pardon from both parties and says they have to serve the prison sentence “without delay”. However, not all those sentenced to prison for this case have entered prison: Aitor Telleria, another head of the corruption network, sentenced to five years, is not going to be imprisoned for health reasons.

The first to enter the prison of those convicted in the De Miguel lawsuit was Xabier Sánchez Robles. The former Director of Youth of the Basque Government entered prison on 17 May to serve a seven-year sentence. The second was the former leader of the PNV at the Board of Directors of Álava, Koldo Otxandiano, with seven years of conviction. Alfredo de Miguel, a former member of Araba Buru Batzar, has been sentenced for twelve years, but is not going to serve more than nine in prison.
