Description

A fair was being held in the town of Ordicia and María Dolores had just sat her son, aged 3, down on one of the tractors on show on the Gudari Etorbidea promenade. At that moment, José Antonio López Ruiz (alias Kubati), who was unmasked, fired three shots at her, hitting her once in the temple. Years later, in 1991, Kubati told the judge that he had walked up to Maria Dolores and asked her, ‘Are you Yoyes?’. When she answered that she was, he took out his gun and said: ‘Do you know who I am? I am from ETA and I have come to execute you’. Maria Dolores lunged at her killer, who shot her in the thigh and chest. She fell to the ground and Kubati shot her again in the head.
