Description

On 23 May 1990, the body of Virgilio Do Nascimento Afonso, a young Portuguese man aged 24, was found in the Buenavista district of San Sebastian. He had been shot dead. Initial police investigations suggested that the killing was due to inter-gang violence, as the victim had a police record for possession of weapons and, according to police, he belonged to a gang involved in drug trafficking. However, a month later, in a statement published in the newspaper Egin, ETA claimed responsibility for the murder justifying it on the grounds of the victim’s involvement in drug trafficking.
