Description

Mario Gonzalez Blasco, a worker at the Agruminsa company in Vizcaya, was kidnapped and murdered by ETA in the town of Eibar, Gipuzkoa on 2 August 1980. He was 51 years old and was married with two children. The kidnapping took place shortly after 6 am, when Mario finished his shift as a welder in a mine. He was on his way home when a number of hooded ETA terrorists intercepted his car and kidnapped him. Around three o’clock that afternoon, several calls were made to media outlets in the name of ETA politico-militar, claiming responsibility for the kidnapping and murder of Mario Gonzalez and alleging that he had links to the Batallón Vasco Español (Spanish Basque Battalion). The terrorists abandoned his body on the outskirts of the town of Eibar.
