MADRID – Family and friends of two ETA suspects were on Thursday ordered out of court in the second disruption within days to a terrorist trial.
Aitor Aguirrebarrena and Asier Arzalluz, who are being tried for planting a car bomb at a Guardia Civil station in Soria in July 2000, started an ETA chant in the Madrid courtroom.
Their family and friends joined in with shouts in favour of the separatist terrorist band, making fists in the air.
The outbreak prompted other members of the public in the courtroom to shout "murderers" and insult the accused and their supporters.
Tribunal president Angela Murillo ordered the family and friends of the ETA suspects out of the court and later the police ordered them out of the building.
The incident is the second disruption to an ETA trial within the last week after Francisco Javier Garcia Gaztelu, known as Txapote, insulted the judge at his trial. Txapote was convicted to 82 years for murdering socialist leader Fernando Mugica
On Friday, Txapote insulted tribunal judge Alfonso Guevara, calling him a circus chump and refused to stand or sit when asked.
