MADRID, October 21. (Itar-Tass). —The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) unveiled on Monday the final verdict in the case of Basque terrorist Ines del Rio. The Spanish court sentenced her to 3,828 years in prison for complicity in the murder of 24 people in 1980.
Given the special aspects of criminal legislation of the kingdom, she had to be released after 18 years in prison. The Spanish court, in order to prevent release of the terrorist that “has not shown signs of remorse”, applied against her “the Parot doctrine”, according to which the criminal could not be released.
The European Court of Human Rights found that the application of the doctrine violated two articles of human rights treaty. ECHR ordered to release the terrorist and pay her EUR 30,000 for non-pecuniary damage and EUR 1,500 as claim costs reimbursements.
In case this court decision is enforced, in the coming months Spain would have to release another 61 Basque terrorist, who also served their terms in prison.
It is expected that the Minister of Justice Alberto Ruiz Gallardon and Interior Minister Jorge Fernandez Diaz will hold on Monday a joint press conference in Madrid and will express their position on the ECHR decision.
