Description

On 12 May 1980, ETA shot and killed Ramón Baglietto Martínez in Alto de Azcárate. The victim was a sympathiser of the Unión de Centro Democrático party and a former town councillor in Azcoitia. He was driving home from Elgoibar when his car was gunned down about three kilometres from Elgóibar. Baglietto lost control of the vehicle, which crashed into a tree. The gunmen then approached the car and on seeing that he was still alive, shot him at point-blank range.

Ramón Baglietto Martínez was 42 years old. He had been born in Bilbao, although his family moved to Eibar shortly afterwards. He owned a furniture store in Elgoibar and lived with his wife, Pilar Elías, and their two children, aged 13 and 9, in Azcoitia.

One of the terrorists who perpetrated the attack had been saved by Baglietto from being crushed by a truck when he was a child.
