Edmundo Bal and Maite Pagaza warn that? The most important thing for non-inserted terrorists is to normalize their own image? A? Humiliating fact for the victims?
The deputy spokesman of the Parliamentary Group Citizens (GPCs), Edmundo Bal, and the first vice president of the Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE) of the European Parliament, Maite Pagazaurtundúa, have presented a legislative initiative to establish the disqualification penalty for public service, for a prolonged or even permanent time, to those convicted of terrorist offenses. Bal explained that "when they leave prison, they cannot again victimize victims working in related municipalities and public administrations whose salary is paid with everyone's taxes."
Pagazaurtundúa recalled that "the most important thing for terrorists not inserted when they leave prison is to normalize their own image", a "humiliating fact for the victims". The Orange MEP has opted to "understand the spirit of the time and the ways to alter and undermine the legal assets that we defend the most, such as freedom of conscience and the state of democratic law." "We are not seeing reality as it is, because they lie to us when they talk to us that they are not tributes to the terrorists who have served their sentence, it is the terrorist's exaltation for what he has been," criticized the vice president of the LIBE Commission .
Bal explained that the penalty of disqualification must be longer than the penalty of deprivation of liberty for the "deterrent effect" since "it cannot be that when someone leaves the prison he has already fulfilled the disqualification." Also, the orange deputy stressed that its reduction will be proposed "in cases of resignation of the armed struggle, forgiveness of victims, regret and collaboration in clarifying acts of terrorism." The deputy spokesman of the GPCs has announced that the liberal party will present initiatives in Congress "in order to ask the Government to lead the project in the European Union, not to hinder it and lead it."
