Ángel Acebes

Ángel Acebes Paniagua (b. July 3, 1958 in Pajares de Adaja - Ávila) is a Spanish politician.

Married, Acebes holds a degree in law from the University of Salamanca, although he has been a member of parliament for the rightwing People's Party since 1996 representing Avila.

Acebes played a key role in securing the support of minority parties and so making it possible for the People's Party to form a government. He was Justice Minister from 1999 to 2002 and Interior Minister from 2002 to 2004. He was the Minister responsible for Homeland Security and Police when the Madrid bombings occurred and was criticised by his opponents for blaming the attacks on ETA, allegedly for electoral gain, rather than on Islamic militants.
