Just days after it was revealed that the Basque separatist group ETA, has threatened a number of leading Balearic businesspeople in the worlds of tourism and entertainment, ordering them to pay the terrorist organisation between 50 and 60 million pesetas as a “revolutionary tax,” the Balearics and the population were ruled out as a prime target for ETA yesterday. Central government delegate Catalina Cirer, said yesterday that the threats received by local businesspeople “have caused the normal level of concern” for the region's police, but little more. Cirer said that the Interior Ministry (Home Office) and the Secretary of State for Security are “no more worried than usual.” Cirer said that those targeted in the Balearics are part of a “massive” mailing campaign mounted by ETA “at a national level.”
