  • European Lawyers for Democracy and Human Rights (ELDH) have joined the Sare demonstration in Bilbao on Saturday. They stress the “need” to apply the law ordinarily to prisoners for peace and reconciliation.

The OECD members have shown their support for the demonstration that Sare will be holding next Saturday in Bilbao, as Naiz has announced. In a statement, the lawyers have defended the demonstration in favour of the prisoners and have stated that ETA terminated its armed action over twelve years ago. Lawyers have also stressed the need to "suspend" exceptional legal measures affecting Basque political prisoners by making any possibility of release "impossible".

The OECD stresses that Basque prisoners are not guaranteed the right to benefits under ordinary law and that they are serving 40 years of imprisonment without expectation of early release: “Of the current 142 Basque political prisoners, 45 have complied with three quarters of the sanctions and may be free from the application of ordinary legislation.”

Lawyers call for the "ordinary" application of the law to Basque political prisoners and for the repeal of the exceptional measures that have long been applied: “Legislation must be reviewed and implemented, along with the new context of peace and reconciliation in the Basque Country.”

The CoR also highlighted the "progress" made in the Basque Country: “The dissolution of ETA, the legalisation of political parties and policies against the dispersion of Basque prisoners have brought Euskal Herria closer to sustainable peace.”
