INTERNATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS
Supporting our partners in search of justice
121 cases of stolen children in Argentina have been resolved.
The photos throughout the International Human Rights Programme section of the report illustrate the struggle of the South American peoples against the injustices carried out against many of them and their families during the 1970s and 1980s. In May 2016, an Argentinean court found governments in Argentina, Uruguay, Bolivia, Chile and Paraguay guilty of conspiring to hunt down, kidnap and kill political opponents. Known as Operation Condor, this resulted in the murder of thousands. Years of legal battles have resulted in the sentencing of the last Argentine dictator, high and mid-ranking Argentine military officials and an Uruguayan army colonel to prison terms of up to 25 years.
