Description

Two young men entered Pedro’s bar, the Gurea Da. They ordered a drink and then shot him twice from point-blank range. There were no customers in the bar at the time of the attack, but several of his children and his wife were there. He was taken to hospital in a serious condition, but died on the way. ETA later claimed that the victim had been involved in drug trafficking. At the time of his death, Pedro Pardo had papers in the name of Manuel Castellanos Escamilla and it was under this name that he was buried. Many years later, the official lists of the Ministry of the Interior were still reporting that a resident of Bermeo named Manuel Castellanos Escamilla had been shot dead by ETA on 26 December 1984. The real Manuel Castellanos was a resident of Barcelona who in 1975 had reported the theft of his ID card and driving license in Santa Coloma de Gramanet.
