There is some coverage of this in the Spanish media, too, for those of you who can read Spanish.
This is very frightening for us who know Spain. After the M-11 attacks we were assured that Zapatero would be a different and law-abiding leader who would use the law to combat terrorism, and not vague charges out of a Kafka novel. But he and his Justice Ministry are going down the same dangerous road that led to Guantanamo. There are already many assaults on Moroccans, and harrassments of Muslims reported after the attacks, and now there is this legal attack.
Look at this quote from a police official in Spain:
"With March 11, there is a before and after," the official was quoted as saying. "What can we do when there is no evidence to charge a person, but all signs are that the person knew of, encouraged or supported terrorist activities?"
He is saying that when you THINK you don't like someone, you can just arrest and deport them despite a lack of EVIDENCE. That is not how any justice system should work!
Please, keep this issue in mind. The Spanish government is very responsive to criticism, please don't ignore this just because it is in western Europe. Spain has good things, but this is a very frightening development!
