Description

Alejandro Hernández worked as a janitor in the Foreign Trade Administrative Vocational Training Centre in Irún. He also owned a bar and had recently purchased a night club. Over the previous months, according to one of his children, he had received a number of threats, which were acted upon on the morning of 30 November 1978. Two terrorists entered the school, asked for Alejandro and upon identifying him, shot him six times. Later the same day, ETA claimed responsibility for the murder and accused the victim of having been a member of the Guardia de Franco paramilitary organisation and of collaborating with the police.
