      1000 years is too less time..how about 10,000 years??????...on serious notes why can't judge simply state jail for lifetime rather than coming with illogical years?

    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"

      Not quite, but my partner says they will be out after 20 years, same as every other criminal jailed for 'life' in Spain.

    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 smile Perhaps the lads sentenced in Spain can look forward to some deal being done smile
