Accused ETA Terrorist Arrested in Mexico

MEXICO CITY – A man wanted in Spain for suspected involvement in attacks carried out by the Basque terrorist group ETA was arrested in the central state of Guanajuato, the Mexican Attorney General’s Office said Thursday.

Angel Maria Telleria Uriarte had been living illegally in Mexico since the 1980s and the statute of limitations on some of the charges he faces will take effect next month, the office said in a statement.

Telleria was arrested Wednesday in the city of Leon in an operation conducted by the Criminal Investigations Agency, the AG’s office said.

The suspect “was taken to the National Migration Institute (INM) for his immediate transfer to the country requesting him,” the AG’s office said.

Telleria was the subject of an Interpol red notice, an alert from the international police organization that in some countries can serve as a basis for arrest.

The red notice said Telleria was wanted for an attack that resulted in deaths, stockpiling arms and arms possession.

On June 16, 1981, Telleria, Antonio Goicoechea Elorriaga and Jose Luis Eciolaza Galan killed police inspector Maria Josefa Garcia in an apartment building in Zarauz, a city in northern Spain.

Eciolaza opened fire on the police inspector with a submachine gun and the three men fled by tossing a hand grenade to cover their escape, Interpol said.
