Received as a hero in the Anoeta velodrome in San Sebastián, four days after being released from prison where he did six and a half years for trying to rebuild the outlawed Batasuna, the former leader of the political arm of ETA wanted to make it clear that the only way is to "vourself" with Spain.

Otegi said that "If there's one thing the prison offers, it's a lot of time to think," particularly in "how to fight better the enemy". And he stressed that if the sentence which he served previously, of 18 months, allowed to see "a new strategy", the Government in Madrid must "prepare for what was out of this period of six and a half years."

The leader of the pro-independence Basque left was one of the first leaders to advocate the abandonment of armed s truggle, at the end of the years 80. In 2006, he was one of the main participants in the dialogue with the Spanish Government, that would eventually fail in the wake of an ETA bombing at Madrid airport.
