A look ahead to human rights trials in Argentina this year

Pagina/12 provides us with an overview of upcoming human rights trials in 2014.

At least 105 alleged perpetrators will stand in the dock this year in cases involving a total of 663 victims. 11 trials already have a confirmed start date.

Among them, a trial in Buenos Aires starting in February will look at the atrocities committed in the detention centre El Vesubio (see here).

The biggest trial planned for this year will open on 17 February in Mendoza with 41 accused, including five members of the judiciary. One of them is Otilio Romano, who attempted to flee justice and was extradited from Chile.

At least four trials are set to begin in March, including in Rosario and Santa Fe.
