Keep jailed terrorists right where they are!

A CAMPAIGN, allowing members of separatist group ETA to be relocated nearer to their Basque Country homes, has divided public opinion, with terrorism victims condemning the move.

Since coming to power last June, Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez has promised to reverse an official Government policy to keep the jailed ETA members in prisons across Spain.

The families of the 46 prisoners in French jails, and one prisoner behind bars in Portugal, claim moving nearer to their homes will assist their eventual reintegration into society.

Some critics and relatives of the estimated 853 ETA victims are resisting the decision, however, arguing that the prisoners should show remorse and renounce any ETA links, before being allowed to move closer to home.

Since Sanchez announced his new policy, 19 ETA prisoners have been transferred back to the Basque Country. But just two of them had, publicly, given up any links to the terrorist group.
