The APDH asked the Court to consider torture in the Malvinas as crimes against humanity

This Wednesday the 6th, the Permanent Assembly for Human Rights (APDH) asked the Supreme Court of Justice to constitute itself as amicus curiae ("friend of the court") in the judicial case on the torture of soldiers during the Malvinas War and supported the request of the plaintiff so that the reported crimes are considered crimes against humanity.

"The State has the legal obligation to investigate and punish its execution regardless of how much time has passed," said Guillermo Torremare.

The president of APDH, Guillermo Torremare , declared to Télam: "Torture, due to the cruelty it entails, is absolutely prohibited at all times and places."

In the same sense, the presentation signed by the Assembly explains: "The crime of torture in the Malvinas War must be investigated and prosecuted; failure to do so implies the risk of incurring international responsibility."

The person currently promoting the case is the Public Prosecutor's Office (MPF) based on multiple complaints from soldiers who testified in the case.
