Description

Following the theft of 14 million pesetas from the workers’ payroll at the company CAF, in Beasain on 31 May, the police had set up a number of checkpoints. In the early hours of 2–3 June, on the road between Lezcano and Ataún, a number of officers in a Civil Guard vehicle driven by the victim saw three suspects. They asked them for their papers. One of the men pulled out a gun and fired at them. The bullet hit Manuel in the heart, and he died shortly afterwards in hospital.
