Poster. Arenas

After fifteen years of proceedings the Strasbourg Tribunal (ECHR) has confirmed the sentences passed by French and Spanish courts against Manual Perez Martinez, general secretary of the PCE(r).

Perez Martinez was arrested in Paris in 2000, he was tried and convicted by the French courts, was later extradited to Spain, again tried and convicted by Spanish courts and the process has come to an end in Strasbourg. The state has achieved its goal of a life sentence for Martinez, considering his age and poor health.
