Madrid, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 23rd Nov, 2020 ) :Belgium on Sunday extradited to Spain a former member of Basque separatist group ETA who is wanted by Madrid for the 1981 murder of a Spanish lieutenant colonel, the authorities said.
The police statement said Jauregui Espina, who worked as a cook in Belgium, is wanted in Spain for her participation in a series of ETA attacks in the 1980s, including the 1981 murder of Lieutenant Colonel Ramon Romeo Rotaeche in Bilbao, the financial capital of Spain's northern Basque Country.
She is also wanted for "membership in a criminal organisation."Created in 1959 at the height of Francisco Franco's dictatorship, ETA waged a relentless campaign of killings and kidnappings in its fight for an independent Basque homeland in northern Spain and southwest France, leaving at least 853 dead.
