Description

Antonio Echeverria was 33 years old and was the mayor of Oyarzun. A member of ETA called at his home. The victim’s sister opened the door. The terrorist asked for the mayor, saying that he had an urgent message to give him. When Antonio appeared at the door, the terrorist shot him in the chest. On the next day, ETA issued a statement again threatening all mayors who did not resign their posts. He was the first person to be killed by ETA following the death of General Franco, four days earlier, and the last of 1975, during which the organisation killed 16 people in all.
