Uruguayans for Truth and against Dictatorial Past

Uruguayans for Truth and against Dictatorial Past
Montevideo, Sep 30 (PL) Thousands of Uruguayans today are demanding in the capital truth, justice and never again a having a dictator. The event was a march organized by human rights organizations and the central workers union PIT-CNT.

Lawyer Hebe Martínez Burle said to Prensa Latina that "it´s high time we found out what really happened and punish those who violated the constitution and human rights."

Former dictator Juan María Bordaberry and his foreign minister Juan Carlos Blanco are accused of co-participating in the murder of former Uruguayan legslators, Zelmar Michelini and Héctor Gutiérrez Ruiz in Argentina in 1978.

The lawyer also accused Uruguayan soldiers of being respnsible betwwwen 1973 and 1985 for the torture, kidnapings and death of many of his countrymen.

In that sense, the organizarion "Mothers and Families of Detained and or Disappeared push home their decision to "continue their search for their loved ones," who went missing as part of the repressive Condor plan, used by dictators of the Latin Americsn south.

Only two months ago, soldiers hended over a written-report upon the request of President Tabaré Vázquez, where victims from the repression had been buried.

But the search has given no reslts, which is testing people's trust.
