Argentina not crying for Spain

THE Argentine relatives of Spanish Civil War victims have demanded an inquest – shortly after superjudge Baltasar Garzon’s efforts were thwarted.

Families of three war victims are now citing universal jurisdiction – ironically the same principle used by the under fire Garzon.

After the judge’s own war-time investigation was blocked by counterparts, a court in Buenos Aires began its own proceedings.

The case was brought by Dario Rivas and Ines Garcia and has received the backing of Spanish historical memory groups.
