Argentina: Arrest in Spain

An alleged torturer, Jorge Alberto Soza, accused of human rights abuses during the Argentine 'dirty war', was recently arrested in Spain.

The 72-year-old is wanted in Argentina in connection with 18 cases of kidnapping and torture between 1975 and 1977 when he was an assistant Federal Police commissioner and chief delegate in the southern Argentine city of Neuquen.

Soza was arrested July 7 and is being held in a Madrid jail pending his transfer to Argentina. He had been living in the nearby town of Carcaixent since 1992.
