Spain bans another suspected ETA ally

Spain’s Supreme Court has banned another Basque group, the PCTV party. The move comes just days after judges outlawed the ANV party for alleged ties to the armed separatist movement, ETA.

The PCTV party holds nine seats in the Basque parliament but the Spanish court insisted it too had direct links to ETA.

Both groups are said to have been used by ETA last year as a way to contest local elections with its perceived political wing, Batasuna, barred from running.

Last week, Spain’s Constitutional Court also ruled against any attempts by Basque leaders to canvas public opinion on autonomy, saying it amounted to a referendum.
