Andalusian regional justice minister Rosa Aguilar was among the Spanish delegation along with representatives of the city of Seville.The Spanish defendants met Spanish Foreign Minister Alfonso Dastis in Madrid in early April, who tweeted the trio had undertaken "rescue and humanitarian aid" work.According to one of the firefighters, Manuel Blanco, Greek coastguards arrested them after they returned from a rescue mission.
