A SPANISH terror suspect who lived a quiet life with his family in the UK is waiting to hear if he will be extradited.
Eneko Gogeaskoetxea Arronategui, 44, is wanted by authorities in Spain for allegedly trying to kill King Juan Carlos during a visit to Bilbao’s Guggenheim Museum in 1997.
Arronategui – known as Cyril Macq – was arrested in July after being recognised by a Spanish national at a squash club in Cambridge.
The extradition hearing at Westminster Magistrates’ Court heard there were eight European Arrest Warrants for Arronategui, who is linked to ETA.
The Spaniard is alleged to have filled flowerboxes with anti-tank grenades in the grounds of the museum while posing as a gardener, before killing a police officer during their botched escape.
Arronategui is also accused of planting explosives near a police station, a bull ring, a barracks and a court house.
The hearing continues.
