MADRID, 25 Ene. (EUROPA PRESS) -

The judge of the National Court Santiago Pedraz has agreed to continue investigating at least until next August the alleged role of the former leadership of ETA in the assassination of judge Francisco Querol on October 30, 2000 in Madrid.

In an order from this Monday, collected by Europa Press, the head of the Central Court of Instruction Number 5 agrees to what was requested by the Prosecutor's Office, who recalled that the declaration as investigated to the former members of the leadership is still pending. from the band.

It was in December 2021 when Pedraz filed a Dignity and Justice complaint that seeks to clarify the attack, in which, in addition to Querol, who was the target, his driver, Armando Medina, lost his life; the national policeman Jesús Escudero, and an EMT driver named Jesús Sánchez. Another 30 people were injured.

The judge agreed in an order to take a statement from almost a dozen former ETA leaders, including María Soledad Iparraguirre, alias 'Anboto'; Javier García, 'Txapote', and Ignacio Miguel Gracia, 'Iñaki de Rentería', for the murder of Querol, who was 69 years old.

The Public Prosecutor's Office asked the investigator to extend the investigation for at least six more months to carry out these procedures and those that could be derived from the aforementioned statements.

The magistrate received a report last November in which the Civil Guard identifies 'Iñaki de Rentería', 'Mikel Antza', 'Txapote', 'Jon', 'Baltza', 'Willy', 'Ramuntxo', ' Anboto' and 'Olga' as members of the terrorist leadership that gave the "timely orders" to kill Judge Francisco Querol and two other people.

Throughout 307 pages, the Armed Institute places these nine former ETA leaders as members of its "highest management body" at that time who "would have participated in the design, management, monitoring, media facilitation and delivery of the orders opportune for the materialization of the terrorist action".

The Civil Guard frames the murder of Querol in the new strategy agreed upon in 1997 "collegiately" by the ETA leadership to initiate a series of attacks against judges, magistrates and prosecutors, after the fall in 1992 of the ETA leadership in Bidart ( France).
