Argentina/Paraguay: Military Dr to be Extradited

Former captain Norberto Atilio Bianco is to be extradited from Paraguay, where he fled last year, back to Argentina to face charges of crimes against humanity during the dictatorship. He has already been convicted of appropriating two children, who were registered as his own while in fact they were the offspring of disappeared persons. He is also accused of running a clandestine maternity ward in the military hospital of the Campo de Mayo in the late 1970s, where more than 35 women may have given birth before having their babies stolen.

Bianco, who is currently under house arrest, won't be sent back to Argentina immediately as he is likely to appeal the extradition order.
