Twelve years after he was wrongly convicted for the rape and murder of two sisters, Paco Larranaga has finally been released from the notorious Bilibid prison in Manilla and is being transferred to Madrid today.
Paco Larranaga has landed in Madrid where he will appear in court today. His family have been told that he will be transferred to the Basque country, where his father is from, in the next week.
Reprieve welcomes his arrival in Spain and urges Spain to immediately review the legality of his detention in light of the UN's express findings of the number of violations of his right to a fair trial.
Reprieve believes that Paco Larranaga was wrongly convicted by a deeply flawed show trial following a politically motivated police investigation.
The campaign to achieve justice for Paco will continue
