Argentina, May 12, 2012
DD.HH. organizations, Grandmothers of Plaza de Mayo and plaintiffs in the case involving the “Pozo de Banfield”, clandestine detention center during the military dictatorship, denounced the escape of the repressor Juan Miguel Wolk.
The repressor was tried for crimes against humanity committed in the clandestine detention center during the last military dictatorship.
The organizations seek to “denounce the chain of impunity that resulted in the escape of this genocide and to demand the resolution of this situation.”
Wolk, who once was the Buenos Aires police commissioner, was the head of the center known as “Pozo de Banfield”, where they kept students that were taken as prisoners in the Night of the Pencils, 1976. He was in domiciliary arrest at his home in Mar del Plata.
Last Friday, The Supreme Court revoked the arrest and dictatehis transfer to a common prison, but when police went looking to move him to Marcos Paz the prisoner was not found.
The commissioner is charged with abduction of children, false imprisonment and torture of more than three hundred victims committed in the clandestine center that operated in the Brigade of Investigations of the Buenos Aires Police of Banfield (Pozo de Banfield).
Federal prosecutors warned that they set all measures to try to recapture him.
