Description

Eugenio Saracíbar González de Durana was a colonel in the Infantry. He was 65 years old and had lived in Irún for 25 years. For the last seven years he had been living in San Sebastian, where he was in charge of the Military Store. He was in the habit of walking home each evening. At around 8.15 pm, as he was going along Avenida de Francia, he was shot in the back by members of ETA’s Otxobi unit. They then fired on him again as he was lying on the ground. ETA claimed responsibility for the attack two days later. In the note, they also called on Basques to vote for Herri Batasuna in the upcoming elections.
