Paraguay: Dictatorship Archives Opened

Human rights activists in Paraguay, led by Martin Almada, now have access to military archives apparently containing information about the Stroessner era. In addition, the files seem to include material on Argentines as well, leading to hopes that it could reveal more about Operation Condor, the pan-Latin American intelligence campaign.
"Many relatives of disappeared prisoners don't know where their loved ones are buried. Maybe these documents will provide clues," Almada said.

Good. The more documents out the better.
