A Spanish court has sentenced a former leader of the now-defunct Basque separatist movement ETA to 122 years in prison for ordering a murder in 1995.

 

The victim was army commander Luciano Cortizo.

ETA leader Maria Soledad Iparraguirre Guenechea, known as Anboto, was transferred to Spain in September by France.

There she had served a prison sentence for crimes that generated money for ETA.

Established in 1959, the ETA was dissolved in May 2018. More than 800 people were killed in ETA attacks. About 600 members of the movement are detained in Spain.
