Three members of Basque separatist group Eta were jailed for 1,000 years each today for a bombing that killed two people at Madrid airport.
Does this surprise you?
I read somewhere that Spain is taking terrorism seriously, and 1000 years is meant to show that there will never be any get out of jail free card for those convicted.
Too many times in other countries people whine about their civil liberties being violated, this I feel is the judges way of saying "Don't **** with me"
1,000 years thats half as long as the existence of Christianity if they serve the full sentence they will be old men
Actually during the terrorist campaign in the North of Ireland - men were regularly sentenced to 600 years and so forth - however - they were all released in 1998 following a deal with the British Government Perhaps the lads sentenced in Spain can look forward to some deal being done
