Spain’s cooperative newspaper La Marea, which just launched its new website, has published an op-ed column about last year’s verdict by the Spanish Supreme Court that closed the judicial avenue as a way to seek reparation and justice for the victims of Francoism (while acquitting Baltasar Garzón after having disbarred him in another case). Reading the verdict carefully, the column argues, it appears that the Supreme Court opens the door toward the creation of a truth commission. Read it here (in Spanish).
