(IPS) – While the trials against members of the military and police for human rights abuses committed during Argentina’s 1976-1983 dictatorship move ahead, the regime’s economic crimes have also begun to come to light.
More than 600 businesspersons lost their property to the dictatorship.
“We weren’t involved in politics and had nothing to do with the government. But they took everything we had, our seven companies and the company plane. And it’s a miracle they didn’t kill us,” Alejandro Iaccarino, who was a prosperous dairy industry businessman in the 1970s, told IPS.
