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

    She was doomed the moment she opened her mouth in The Dark Country and rightly so.

    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.

    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.
    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

    “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.
