Jorge Julio Lopez

Plaque for Julio Jorge Lopez, Plaza de Mayo.

In the post on ESMA I wrote that one member of the military broke ranks and gave evidence. Apologies for getting that wrong: I hope the story of Jorge Julio Lopez from Wikipedia puts the story straight. He wasn't a member of the military: he was a bricklayer imprisoned and tortured in the 70s who stood up in court two years ago to testify against his oppressors, and then 'disappeared'.
