Another lawfare fiasco in Spain
Angry victims of the 2004 Madrid train bombings have vowed to appeal over what they see as the trial court's lenient treatment of some of the accused.Clearly the victims do not agree with the PM. I suspect they will remember this statement at the next election. In the meantime the security forces of several countries need to keep a close on the the people who were released. We will probably be seeing them in action again. It is too bad they were not sent to Gitmo. They may still get their chance.
One victim's relative said there had been too few guilty verdicts for such a horrible crime.
The court sentenced three men to thousands of years in jail for their part in the attacks, but acquitted seven including the alleged mastermind.
Spanish PM Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero said justice had been done.
