press conference to denounce the cort's decision
On January 19 2007, the Supreme Court published its decision, although it gave itself time until February 8 to publish the legal arguments on which the change is based. Indeed, three of the judges believe these organisations are “illegal associations which amount to a terrorist gang, organisation or group” and gave 23 young Basques 6 years in prison whilst they acquitted one. A further two members of the Tribunal voted against this decision.
The Audiencia Nacional has issued arrest orders to the Policía Nacional, the Guardia Civil and the Ertzaintza, several of which have been fulfilled already.
