Uruguayan dictatorship criminal to go on trial in Italy

Montevideo, Feb 7 (Prensa Latina) A chapter on the repression during the dictatorship in Uruguay will be revealed in Italy, where a person will be tried on charges of crimes against humanity, it was reported in this capital on Tuesday.

The trial will begin in Rome on February 14 with Jorge Tróccoli, accused of the murder and disappearance of teacher Elena Quinteros and two Argentinians kidnapped in Uruguay.

Quinteros was kidnapped inside the Venezuelan Embassy on June 28, 1976, where she was dragged off by forces of the dictatorship, which led to the rupture of relations between the two countries.

According to the report of the Peace Commission prepared here in 2003, the victim was taken to a under-covered center where she was tortured for months until she was executed in November 1976.

The trial will also judge Jorge Tróccoli’s responsibility in the detention and subsequent handing over to the Paraguayan police of Argentinian-Italian couple José Potenza and Rafaela Filipazzi, who were eventually murdered.

Elena Quinteros joined the list of missing detainees that State terrorism left behind in Uruguay, Grupo R Multimedio reports in Montevideo.
