The horror caused then was so striking that ETA felt compelled to issue a communiqué stating that they had given advance warning of the Hipercor bomb, but that the police had declined to evacuate the area. The police claim that the warning came only a few minutes before the bomb exploded. Another Spanish "counter-terrorist" law puts suspected terrorist cases under the central tribunal ''Audiencia Nacional'' in Madrid, due to the threats by the group over the Basque courts. Under Article 509 suspected terrorists are subject to being held "incommunicado" for up to thirteen days, during which they have no contact with the outside world other than through the court appointed lawyer, including informing their family of their arrest, consultation with private lawyers or examination by a physician other than the coroners. In comparison the habeas corpus term for other suspects is three days. *European Astronaut Centre (EAC), Cologne, Germany *European Space Astronomy Centre (ESAC), Madrid, Spain
