• Putting Arnaldo Otegi in prison was stupid, a real craze. A peace process can not operate if the maximum representative of one of the sides is in prison. It judges on a democratic state shouldn't act this way. I think that Spanish judges follow the agenda set up by the PP. A peace process should be separated of the actions of judges. It is unimaginable that a judge in the North of Ireland had put Gerry Adams in jail in the middle of the negotiation.

  • The continued incarceration of political prisoners requires urgent attention. The release of Arnaldo Otegi, Secretary General of the Basque pro-independence party SORTU and leader of the peace process, would be an important step

  • We sincerely hope that all those involved in the Basque peace process will find encouragement in our humble experience that even long-standing and seemingly insurmountable differences can be solved through negotiation.
