Description

Francisco Gil Mendoza was killed shortly after 10.30 pm on 7 August 1991 in Irún by ETA member Juan Ramón Rojo González, who was hooded and armed with an automatic rifle. Francisco’s brother Alfredo was with him at the time, but managed to get away. Alfredo asked some young people who were at the scene to help his brother, but none of them wanted to. He then went into the bar opposite, which was frequented by Herri Batasuna sympathisers. On seeing Alfredo asking for help for his brother, one of the barmaids threw the contents of a glass over him and turned up the music. Francisco Gil had just turned 27. He was unmarried.
