May 28, 2010
Tens of thousands of Uruguayans including President Jose Mujica marched in silence on May 20th demanding to know the fate of victims of the US-backed military dictatorship which led the country from 1973 to 1985.
From daily The Morning Star in Britain:
Dictatorship general appeals jail sentence
Friday 10 May 2013
The first general convicted of human rights violations during Uruguay’s dictatorship has appealed his 28-year prison sentence, his lawyer has confirmed.
General Miguel Dalmao was found guilty on Wednesday of the 1974 murder of literature professor and communist activist Nibia Sabalsagaray.
Gen Dalmao’s lawyer dismissed the verdict as “speculation” and said he’d already launched an appeal on Thursday.
Uruguay’s military junta had previously accepted his claim that 24-year-old Ms Sabalsagaray hanged herself with a handkerchief from an iron peg in the wall just four inches above her head.
Her family were banned from seeing her body but a medical student reported signs of torture and inconsistencies with suicide.
Gen Dalmao has been in hospital for months and is unlikely to serve his sentence.
