Justice For ‘Stolen Children;’ 2 Dictators Convicted

8 Jul

Thursday, July 5, 2012, Argentina’s former dictators Rafael Videla and Reynaldo Bignone were convicted “for the systematic stealing of babies from political prisoners,” The New York Times says “some 500 babies born in jail were taken by the military.” Today, the BBC posted an interview with one of the stolen children, Victoria Montenegro. It was difficult to learn of her birth mother’s fate, she says, because she had grown up only knowing the couple who raised her. “With this verdict we are repairing what happened,” she says. “This sentence is very liberating for me.”
