Pedro Agramunt (Spain)

Pedro Agramunt

"My concern is exclusively the problem of terrorism: this is the crucial issue for Spain.

"Two days ago a claim has been made in the Spanish press that ETA prisoners are political prisoners. Paragraph 3 might make it easier for some of the people serving sentences for terrorism in Spain being given the status of political prisoners.

"This is a concern shared by my Spanish colleagues.

"In Spain, the lines are drawn by the Constitutional Court. Amendment 2 seems, therefore, to be in line with practice in that country.

"I agree with the other speakers who have said that this matter has been dealt with over-hastily by the Assembly.

"Haste in politics was a poor counsel; the implications of this report should have been debated at some length, but this had not been the case."
