The Neoinquisition prosecutes 23 more

Judge Dredd, I mean Baltasar Garzón, is bringing to trial at the Audiencia Nacional of Madrid (the Neoinquisition, the former infamous Tribunal de Orden Público of fascism) to 23 more people, most of them related to the electoral platform Democracy 3 Million (D3M), that was banned from running to the last elections in the Western Basque Country (causing an undemocratic government to be formed for the first time since fascism) and also some of the prisoners' rights platform Askatasuna (freedom).

The formal step of persecuting members as "belonging to terrorist organization" is technically necesary in order to declare a party or electoral list illegal. In the case of the historical party Basque Nationalist Action (EAE-ANV), it was only done when the trial against the historical party was in its last stages, as the defense protested it was illegal to ban a party whose members were all clear. At that point Garzón made up accusations against three random members and voilá: the magic of Spanish justice!
