Description

After finishing work for the day, Vicente Gajate had just got out of his vehicle to walk home. Two terrorists were waiting for him and shot him several times. Vicente fell between two vehicles and died instantly. Around this time, circles close to ETA were using the slogan “PSOE equals GAL”. This was the reason given by the group to justify Vicente’s killing. One of those convicted of aiding and abetting the crime was municipal policeman Pedro María Cuesta Garmendia, one of the victim’s workmates.
