Abstract: 

On February 6, 2020, Brazil extradited Carlos García Juliá, wanted for participating in the 1977 Atocha massacre in Madrid, to Spain.  On his arrival, he was sent to the Soto del Real prison to complete his jail sentence for the five murders and four attempted homicides committed in an office of labor lawyers.[1] At the time of the assassinations García Juliá  was a member of the right-wing New Force.  In 1980, Spain convicted him for being one of the perpetrators of the massacre of three labor attorneys, a law student, and a staff member in the labor lawyers’ office of Comisiones Obreras.[2]
