Ten Years Later - No Justice in Argentina Jewish Community Center Bombing
New York, NY, July 15, 2004…The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) expressed its frustration that ten years after the bombing of the AMIA, a Jewish Community Center in Buenos Aires, which killed 86 people, the perpetrators have not been brought to justice.
In a letter to Néstor Carlos Kirchner, Argentinean President, Barbara B. Balser, ADL National Chair, and Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director wrote:
On the 10th anniversary of the bombing of the Jewish community building in Buenos Aires, Argentina, we express our continued frustration that the perpetrators of the heinous attack have not been brought to justice.
We appreciate your efforts to renew the investigation into the bombing and address the concerns of the Jewish community in Argentina. However, while important progress has been made, no effort should be spared until justice is served for the 86 people who were killed and the hundreds that were wounded on that tragic day in July 1994.
We urge you to mobilize your Government to fully investigate and prosecute those responsible for these deaths.
The Anti-Defamation League, founded in 1913, is the world's leading organization fighting anti-Semitism through programs and services that counteract hatred, prejudice and bigotry.
