Default Canarian Weekly: Sharp-shooter wanted to assassinate Spanish PM

EXPERT rifle-shooter Manuel Murillo Sanchez, 63, has been arrested for, allegedly, planning to assassinate Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez.

Spanish media say Murillo Sanchez, who is said to idolise General Franco, sought revenge after the socialist PSOE Government, headed by Sanchez, announced plans to exhume the ex-dictator?s body.

Murillo was arrested by local Mossos officers at his Catalu?a home in Terrassa, where police are reported to have seized an arsenal of 16 weapons, including ?four rifles of the highest precision, capable of hitting targets 1,000m and 1,500m away, and submachine guns.

It is alleged that Murillo, a private security guard with a gun licence, said he was willing to ?sacrifice for Spain?.

Spanish media claim Murillo Sanchez is an ?outstanding shooter? and is a member of his local Vall?s Olympic shooting club, entering competitions regularly.

The 63-year-old was enraged at the Socialist leader, following the announcement that the remains of Franco were to be exhumed and taken out of the Valley of the Fallen.

Mossos report that Murillo Sanchez began actively searching for accomplices to aid his attack on the Spanish PM in a private WhatsApp group.

He had no prior record of criminal offences, but was said to have frequented far-right-wing environments.

He was detained by Mossos d?Esquadra officers three weeks ago, after a member of the WhatsApp group chat, which included Murillo, tipped off authorities that the security guard was recruiting accomplices to commit the attack against Pedro Sanchez.

The security staff at La Moncloa, Pedro Sanchez?s residence as Prime Minister, were notified about the incident, immediately.
