Argentina News Round-Up

Some updates from recent posts:

The Grandmothers of the Plaza de Mayo have expressed their disapproval at the actions of judge Eduardo Vocos Conesa, who publicly praised recently deceased coup-leader Mohamed Ali Seineldin. It is certainly is a concern when a member of the justice system sees fit to thank someone who tried to overthrow a democratic government for their services to the country.

The Ministry of Defense has ordered into an investigation into the fact that an aeroplane used in the death flights is on display in an air force museum.

A call for Jorge "El Tigre" Acosta to be released from jail has been rejected. Acosta is awaiting trial for his involvement in the ESMA, the case is due to open next month.
