Inmate of Basque origin leaves death row


                              Paco Larrañaga

Paco Larrañaga, who was sentenced to death penalty until it was abolished in the Philippines last June, has already left the death row. The family is happy but it expects impatiently a new step.

Paco Larrañaga has stated that he feels more peaceful and excited since he was moved to a new unit in the same prison of New Bilibid, southern Manila .

The son of former Basque pelota player Manuel Larrañaga and Philippine Margot González has better conditions now in his new cell than those he suffered in the death row.

Paco has spent 9 years imprisoned, almost three of them in the death row for a crime he denies committing. He has now pinned all his hopes on his lawyers and on all those organizations and institutions that consider he did not have a fair trial.
