New complaint against Zorreguieta

POSTED: 01/3/13 3:44 PM

THE HAGUE – A new complaint against the father of princess Máxima has been made by the families of four people who disappeared during the Argentine junta era, according to Argentine media.

Jorge Zorreguieta was Minister of Agriculture during the dictatorship of Jorge Videla and has always denied having any role in the disappearances.

The four disappeared during the period Zorreguieta headed the farming institute INTA where many workers were sacked because they supported the opposition. Several of them disappeared and their survivors have now decided to force an investigation, Dutch news website nu.nl says.

Some 12,000 people disappeared during the junta period between 1976 and 1981.

Zorreguieta’s role in the junta led to him being banned from attending Máxima’s wedding to crown prince Willem-Alexander. Since then, he and his wife have made several private visits to the Netherlands and he attended the christenings of all three granddaughters.
