Otegi assures that EH Bildu is against the ‘ongi etorri’ and separates from Sortu

The general coordinator of EH Bildu, Arnaldo Otegi, assured this Friday that EH Bildu “is in Aiete’s statement”, in which he expressed his regret for the “suffering” caused to the victims of ETA and affirmed that it should never have happened, and against public ‘ongi etorri’ being made to ETA prisoners when they are released. Otegi has made these statements after being asked about the act in tribute in Pamplona to the ETA prisoner Iñaki Etxeberria alias ‘Mortadelo’, after his release from El Dueso prison after having spent 25 years in prison convicted of six murders. The tribute took place less than a month after the ETA prisoners attached to the official and majority group, the EPPK, announced the cessation of the ‘ongi etorris’ with the aim of “strengthening coexistence”.
