Sending Basque man back ‘inhumane’

Jose Ignacio de Juana Chaos

Sending a convicted Basque terrorist back to a Spanish prison would be inhumane and leave him facing near-certain death, a court in Belfast has heard.

Lawyers for Jose Ignacio de Juana Chaos (54) also argued it was absurd that he should be facing a new charge based purely on a newspaper report.

De Juana Chaos, who has already served a jail sentence for his role in up to 25 murders, is fighting attempts to have him returned to Spain over claims that he glorified terrorism.
