Description

Bernardo Pérez Sobrino was 27 years old. Born in Carrión de Calatrava, a village in Ciudad Real, he had moved to the Basque Country as a teenager. There he met María Carmen Medina, who was the same age as him. They married and had two children. At the age of 24, he joined the National Police and was posted to Bilbao. It was there, on 2 April 1984, that he was killed by ETA. As he was having a coffee in the Bautista bar, in the Uretamendi district, an ETA member shot him twice in the back. Another shot wounded the owner of the bar, necessitating surgery. The perpetrator of the crime was ETA member José Félix Zabarte, who was convicted of another murders, including that of a pregnant woman. Due to application of the so-called “Parot doctrine”, he was released from prison two years early in 2015.
