King Felipe Receives Adolfo Suárez Human Rights Defence Award
King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia of Spain were present at the Victims of Terrorism Foundation Awards at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid on Monday.
During the ceremony, King Felipe was presented with the Adolfo Suárez Human Rights Defence Award, in “recognition of the proximity and closeness that the Crown has always shown to victims of terrorist barbarism”. He was presented with the award by the President of the Victims of Terrorism Foundation, María del Mar Blanco.
“This award is not for me, but for all Spaniards who reject terrorist violence and who demand permanent respect and attention for the victims and their families. I receive this award on behalf of the Spaniards who feel a permanent debt to you. We, in short, are grateful,” the King said in his acceptance speech, which he concluded by saying that the pain of victims of terrorism has “always been the pain of the Crown, the pain of all of Spain”.Spain
