    Default The cover up of crimes after the Spanish Civil War

    I watched the program on BBC4 the other night detailing the covering up of the atrocities committed during and after the Spanish Civil War. It's unbelievable that any country would want to protect perpetrators of such crimes against humanity, but this seems to be exactly what the Spanish government is doing.

    I was aware of the baby abduction scandal from a previous program, which was also covered briefly, and it's surprising that this practise was going on in the early 1980's. It's a blight on Spain's reputation and I'm surprised that the the UN or the ECHR don't seem to have been engaged.

    What does the ECHR has to do with the jailing of the Catalan separatists? Do you even have/know the facts or just go by what the Guardian is feeding you?

    They are not political prisoners, they are criminals who broke the law and not any law but the constitution.

    For a start.

    The Rawagede massacre was committed by the Royal Netherlands East Indies Army on 9 December 1947 in the village of Rawagede (now Balongsari in West Java), during Operatie Product. Forces of the Royal Netherlands Army were deployed in the East Indies to restore Dutch authority and protect the country's interests in the Dutch East Indies.

    Rengat In 1949, during the Indonesian National Revolution, Dutch paratroopers massacred perhaps some thousands of people in Rengat according to Indonesian sources. Dutch documents show that 80 inhabitants were killed.

    Why couldn't your lot put up more of a fight against the Germans during WW1 & WW2?

    Why does that mean they are not political prisoners?
