Basque journalists arrested

Eight people sentenced in the most controversial political trial of the last decade, the 18/98 judicial process at the Audiencia Nacional (a.k.a. Neoinquisition), have been arrested yesterday. They are journalists from Orain S.A. (editor of Egin newspaper) and the Joxemi Zumalabe Foundation (that attempted to organize civil disobedience for Basque self-determination).

They were accused of connivence with ETA but all the "evidence" was just ad-hoc police reports (in Spain that may be enough to get you in jail: you are guilty by default if the police says so) . Their appeal was due to be resolved, also but that same political Spanish tribunal, one of these days.
