Collaboration with Latin American police forces "is bearing fruit" in the case of the Bilbao murderer

"There is not much that can be said," responded this morning the Security Councilor of the Basque Country, Josu Erkoreka, in an interview granted to Basque public radio. True to the silence that has surrounded the investigation so far, he has avoided giving explanations about the progress of the investigations. However, he has recognized that the collaboration of the Ertzaintza with other foreign police forces, which he announced last Monday in an appearance in the Basque Parliament, is bearing "fruits".

"Relevant things for the investigation are coming out," he acknowledged. Erkoreka referred specifically to the work that the regional police is carrying out with various police forces in Latin American countries. "He is a person who comes from an Ibero-American country", he has recalled and, therefore, a good part of the investigations focus, "obviously", on clarifying whether he had a record in his country of origin.

Erkoreka himself revealed in an interview that Nelson David had arrived in Spain from Brussels, so everything seems to indicate that the Ertzaintza would also be trying to rebuild its steps in Belgian territory. He also works closely with the Mossos D'Esquadra in Catalonia, where at least two complaints from alleged victims of the Bilbao murderer have emerged. In this regard, Erkoreka has clarified that "everything there is" has not been published, so the appearance of new victims is not ruled out.

"We are with all the police forces that have something to say or something to contribute," summarized the counselor who did not want to specify which specific countries are being targeted by the investigators. "It has moved to several places," he recalled, which is making it even more difficult to reconstruct a case that is already one of the most "complex" that the Ertzaintza has faced.

In addition, the counselor has assured that the collaboration is not only limited to retracing the steps of Nelson David in other places. It is also "projecting onto all those people who have something to say," Erkoreka confirmed.

Erekoreka has asked for patience and respect for the police work in the face of an investigation that "progresses" and that thanks to collaboration is managing to "illuminate" many of the unknowns that still hover over the case. Once again he has asked for "trust" in the Ertzaintza, a body that has a high rate of resolution of homicide cases. "Normally everyone ends up being clarified by the police," Erkoreka concluded.
