Local Spanish media reported at the time of arrest that Preciado had forged documents.
ETA, "Basque Homeland and Liberty", is a separatist organization in Spain that used terrorism as a way of highlighting the cause of Basque independence. It has killed more than 800 people in terrorist attacks over the last 50 years, according to the Spanish government. However, in October 2011, ETA declared a "definitive cessation of its armed activity". No attacks have been registered since.
