MADRID (EFE) – A judge at Spain's High Court on Friday ordered police to prevent a tribute planned in the Basque region to an ETA member who recently died of cancer.

Judge Juan del Olmo said he wanted police to act against terrorism offences such as the praising of terrorism at the event planned for Saturday.

Organisers wanted to pay tribute to Sabin Euba, known as Pelopintxo, who was in charge of the finances of the armed Basque separatist group between 1986 and 1992.
