Paraguay unveils archives from dictatorship

AP | PEDRO SERVIN | Posted 05.25.2011 | Home

ASUNCION, Paraguay — Human rights activists gained access Wednesday to a dictatorship-era military archive that appears to contain long-held secrets about Paraguay's persecution of opponents during Alfredo Stroessner's 1954-1989 rule.

The basement archive in the Ministry of Defense appears to hold some records about Operation Condor, a coordinated campaign by South American military governments against leftists during the 1970s and 80s, according to rights activist Martin Almada.

The discovery was announced hours after Almada gained access the rows of boxes and yellowed ledgers on Wednesday morning. He said the documents apparently contain names of Argentine opponents of Stroessner's government.

"In skimming through them, we uncovered some interesting information regarding Operation Condor," said Almada, who directs a museum about past government repression and torture.

Several South American military governments are accused of working together to crack down on leftist dissidents beginning in the mid-1970s.
