Eight people were arrested this week in Iparralde (northern Basque Country) in connection with a number of attacks that have been carried over the past few years on estate agents and tourist firms based in the area. Only two of the eight will be transported to Paris to stand before an antiterrorist judge, while six have since been released.
According to sources close to the investigation, the two are closely connected with the movement “Euskal Herria ez da salgai” (The Basque Country is not for sale).
Investors have confirmed that traces of DNA from both suspects were found on the scene at the various sites where the attacks were perpetrated.
Both will be transferred to Paris on Saturday afternoon to be judge before an antiterrorist court, sources have informed.
