An excavation in the old cemetery of Ibiza looks for 70 victims of the Franco regime

The technical director of the excavation, Almudena García, explains that after the first search campaign for victims of Franco's violence in the cemetery, in which they found two individuals and the casing of a rifle appeared in the north corner of the grave of ground 1, they have opened probes right below. "We have just started, we are finding ordinary burials and some cleaning bags for cemetery use from the 80s, but already in this superficial cleaning we have found two rifle casings that correspond to the time," says García. He also reports that as they are extrajudicial killings there is no information except for the testimonies, in the civil registry the deaths of certain people who know they were buried there are registered: «We found a grave of two that, according to the registry, there are few and therefore we have a hypothesis of who these people could be».

La directora técnica de la excavación, Almudena García, explica que después de la primera campaña de búsqueda de víctimas de la violencia franquista en el cementerio, en la cual encontraron dos individuos y apareció el casquillo de un fusil en la esquina norte de la fosa de tierra 1, han abierto sondeos justo a continuación. «Acabamos de empezar, estamos encontrando enterramientos ordinarios y algunas bolsas de limpieza de uso cementerial de los años 80, pero ya en esta limpieza superficial hemos encontrado dos casquillos también de fusil que corresponden a la época», cuenta García. También relata que al ser asesinatos extrajudiciales no hay información salvo los testimonios, en el registro civil se inscriben las muertes de determinadas personas que saben que fueron enterradas ahí: «Encontramos una fosa de dos que, según el registro, hay pocas y por lo tanto tenemos una hipótesis de quienes podrían ser estas personas».
