Grande-Marlaska has recently held a meeting on this subject with the presidents of several associations representing more than six thousand victims, the Canary Islands daily "La Provincia" reported Saturday.

During the meeting, president of the Canary Association of Victims of Terrorism (ACAVITE), Lucia Jimenez, who represents nearly 300 Canary Islands victims of terrorism, stressed the need for the Spanish government to take "urgent and immediate" measures in favor of the victims of the "bloody and brutal attacks" committed by the polisario in the Moroccan Sahara, added "La Provincia", quoting a statement by the Autonomous Federation of Associations of Victims of Terrorism in Spain (FAAVTE).

Jimenez and FAAVTE head also urged Grande-Marlaska to work to ensure that these attacks by the polisario front do not go unpunished, the daily noted.

The presidents of these associations also called for urgent reforms and legal measures at the level of the Audiencia Nacional, Spain's highest court, to ensure that the perpetrators of these terrorist attacks committed by the polisario, ETA and other terrorist organizations are brought to justice.
