David Pla, the last leader of the now defunct ETA terrorist group, who was the subject of a European arrest warrant since 2011, was arrested as he went to sign in a police station in Hendaye.
Pla, born in Pamplona in 1975, was part of the leadership of the gang that certified the end of the armed activity on October 20, 2011.
ETA’s last leader was arrested when he went to sign in a police station in Hendaye, after being released on parole in April 2019, following a five years in prison to which he served four.
The European arrest warrant against him was issued by the then judge of the Audiencia Nacional and now Minister of the Interior, Fernando Grande-Marlaska, after it was detected that he had returned to the gang after serving a prison sentence in Spain for membership of a terrorist organisation.
