Description

José Luis Oliva was allegedly a member of ETA’s Orbaiceta group. It is believed that the organisation decided to kill him because he had spent the money stolen in a robbery for his own personal ends. His killers set him up, telling him to get into a car on the pretext of going to look for some guns. He was then shot in the back of the head and died instantly. Some hours later, ETA claimed responsibility for the attack in an anonymous call to Egin newspaper, in which it accused him of being an infiltrator.
