- Imprisonment of the National bureau of Batasuna: political rights?
The detention of Juan Mari Olano in a demonstration, brutally-attacked, by Basque police forces, and which caused dozens of injured on September 9th, gave a new orientation to this dynamic. Indeed the charges held by Baltazar Garzon against Olano were not based on the disorders caused by the demonstration, still less on the alleged illegality of this latter, but rather on the ‘repetition of an offence’ for continuing his activities as spokesman of pro-Amnesty organization Askatasuna.

- Youths prosecuted for causing disorders in Kale Barroka Street, arrested in incommunicado detention
