Argentinian Torturers and Killers
The people that went free under the Amnesty Laws in Argentina Please Help!

The dirty war is over, and human rights are generally respected in Argentina. Still, human rights violations are still a real problem in this country. The fate of 30'000 "disappeared" during the dirty war is still unknown and the Government, shielding itself behind two laws that pardoned all those responsible for the tortures and killings, has no plans to investigate what their fate was. Children (teenagers now), taken away from the arms of their disappeared parents, continue to grow away from their real families, not knowing their true identity. Journalists are harassed for writing articles offensive to the government, and sometimes even beaten up or killed. Conditions in jails are inhuman, beatings at police stations commonplace, and disappearances at the hand of the police are not unheard of. Prisoners often stay in jail for years before being tried for their alledged crimes. There is at least one prisoner of conscience, Fray Antonio Puigjané, who has been sentenced to twenty years in prison for his beliefs.
