Henri Parot (born 6 May 1958) is a member of the Basque separatist group ETA. He was born in Algiers in 1958, the son of a Basque-French marriage that migrated to Algeria. When the Algerian War ended and he was three years old, he returned to France and in the Basque-French city of Bayona when he was 16 years old, where he learned the Basque language.

He was arrested on April 2, 1990 in Seville after an exchange of gunfire with the Spanish police. In 1990, he was given a 4,797 year sentence for 26 murders and 166 attempted murders between 1978 and 1990. He was also convicted of involvement in the 1987 Zaragoza Barracks bombing which killed 11 people (including 5 children and 2 women).
