New intelligence materials belonging to two extinct repressive bodies were found in a unit that was used for exerting detentions and tortures.
The "Mothers and Relatives of Detained and Disappeared People" Organization (Desaparecidos) decried the concealment of information related to the crimes committed by Uruguay's military dictatorship (1973-1985).
Over the weekend, files were found in a military unit containing intelligence reports and orders from the Information and Defense Service (SID) and the Coordinating Body for Anti-Subversive Operations (OCOA), which were two repressive institutions before and after the 1973 military coup.
Desaparecidos Spokesman Ignacio Errandonea assured that the discovery of these archives made evident the Armed Forces' "sustained lies" over lack of information over their criminal acts.
"We know that the military has more hidden documents. We demand that the truth comes to light, not only about all our relatives but also all the aberrations performed by the dictatorship," Errandonea said.
