Description

At around ten o’clock at night a call was made to the editorial office of Egin newspaper stating that Dr Ramiro Carasa “had been executed following interrogation” and that his body was in the hills between Urnieta and Andoain. The journalists alerted the police and went to the scene, where they located the body before the police. Ramiro’s body showed signs of torture: his hands were tied behind his back, his eye was badly bruised, his skull was fractured and he had been shot five times in the head. Dr Carasa (38) was a traumatologist at Nuestra Señora de Aránzazu Hospital. Days before his murder, rumours had circulated that he had refused medical assistance to an ETA member who had been wounded in an attack at the Rancho Chileno restaurant, in which three people were killed. The allegations were refuted by the College of Physicians, but it was too late.
