Description

Saturnino Sota lived at number 33 Calle Cuchillería in Vitoria and ran a bakery on the ground floor of the same building. On 13 December 1978, three masked individuals wearing red hoods parked their Simca 1200 vehicle in front of the business, entered, pulled a female employee aside, pushed Saturnino up against the wall and shot him dead. The following day ETA issued a communiqué claiming responsibility for the crime and accusing the victim of being a “paid police informer”. Saturnino Sota was 49 years old and was from Aldeanueva de Ebro (La Rioja).
