Argentina: Julian Corres Captured

One of the fugitive military officers I mentioned earlier has been captured in Argentina. After 23 days officially 'on the run', Julian Oscar Corres was captured in his mother's house in Villa Constitucion in central Argentina (in his mother's house, seriously? Exactly how hard were they looking for this guy?).

Corres escaped from a police station in Bahia Blanca, and Pagina/12 is reporting that it is suspected that the police there let him get away.

He is wanted in connection with 47 abductions, 38 instances of torture, 17 homicides and 7 forced disappearances from his time at clandestine detention centre La Escuelita (The Little School).
