The Uruguayan police evicted dozens of protestors that during three hours occupied the seat of the Supreme Court to impede the transfer of a magistrate, closely linked to human rights cases, from the criminal to the civil forum. Magistrate Mariana Mota has dealt with some of Uruguay’s most notorious human rights cases dating back to the twelve years of military dictatorship, (1973/1985). Read full article

“Argentina is a true Country where human rights violators are sentenced.”
Dra. Mariana Mota.
Gracias por el piropo, pebeta…
Se hace lo que se puede…
Suerte en lo tuyo…

Uruguay does not need the likes of the despotic AR regime to teach it anything about human rights or the criminal code. That way leads to despair: ask any non-Kitchernerite Argentine.
And as for I don't Think and his We do what we can, yes of course you do dear, keep taking the tranquilizers to dull what vestige of a brain you have.
Argentina needs to have a look at Herr Timermans recent outbursts for human rights violations. Denying a people their right to self-determination, denying they exist and using phrases such as final solution in their regard has certainly set alarm bells ringing.Feb 17th, 2013 - 12:52 pm - Link - Report abuse 0

While I have certain reservations on the Uruguayan amnesty law the proposal to abolish it has been put twice to natioanal referenda and has been upheld by popular vote expressed via the ballot box and that should be respected.Feb 17th, 2013 - 02:04 pm - Link - Report abuse 0
While the judicary is a check on the activities of the executive at the same time they must work within the constitution
In this country niether the judiciary, nor the military nor the police are allowed to engage in political activity of any sort and I think until quite recently did not even have a vote
On this premise Mota was fortunate that she wasnt dismissed altogether rather than being moved sideways from the criminal to the civil division of the courts

Think, the sage of Chubut?
More like the Sage and Onion of Chubut: he certainly needs stuffing. :o)
“Argentina is a true country, here human rights violators are sentenced...” (important caveat) ... unless of course they are friends of CFK in which case they shall have immunity.Feb 18th, 2013 - 09:55 pm - Link - Report abuse 0
