RIP – Eduardo Luís Duhalde

Eduardo Luís Duhalde, one of the key early critics of the Argentine military dictatorship  and its human rights abuses, has passed away at the age of 72. Duhalde, who went into exile in Spain in 1976 after the military ordered his arrest, had been one of the regime’s fiercer critics in the 1970s and 1980s. In addition to serving as the Secretary of Human Rights since 2003, Duhalde was also a respected historian, lawyer, and judge who consistently fought for justice and against human rights abuses. Que en paz descanse.
