After the fall of the military junta in Argentina, the Alfonsín Governement demanded the trial of those responsable for the sordid repression that left 30.000 deads and forced more than a million people into exile. But the courts have since pardonned 400 of those accused, on the grounds that "they had only followed orders". In 1987, President Alfonsín stepped down. His successor, President Carlos Ménem, has favored a general forgivness, claiming the necessary for a young democracy to establish itself with a clean slate. Several human rights organizations have cried in outrage against this revisionary amnesty law. This investigative essay searches for the truth concerning those declared missing during Argentina's "dirty war", while questioning the basis of law which has cleared the military of all crimes committed during the dictatorship.
