“Ellos fueron un engranaje más de la dictadura”

Nacional Mendoza Radio
2016

Human rights lawyer Pablo Salinas gave a detailed, instructive and needed introducción to the historial framework at the start of alegations by the Movimiento Ecuménico por los Derechos Humanos (in Spanish).

My legal practice was the target of offensive graffiti and I received intimidating phone calls and threats. The vandals were the AAA, a paramilitary organisation supported by the state in the dark years of dictatorship.

Pablo Salinas is a human rights lawyer involved in trials for crimes against humanity in Mendoza.

For at least a decade, Argentina is established as a state and society that largely respects human rights. However, the crimes of the past and the enduring attempts to assign responsibilities still cloud the situation. While most human rights defenders can operate in freedom, HRDs seeking justice for violations committed during the dictatorship, journalists and trade unionists have received death threats and been subjected to harassment, arbitrary arrest, prosecutions, police violence and smear campaigns. In recent times, defenders have faced new risks, including police brutality, judicial harassment and oppression in indigenous communities.
