"Son" of Argentinian right-wingers discovers his true identity

The group Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo announced this Wednesday the restitution of the identity of Pablo Athanasiu, son of a Chilean couple and kidnapped during the Argentinean military dictatorship. It’s the case of the “grandson” number 109 that finds out his true origin thanks to the work of this entity.

This way Estela de Carlotto, chief of this human rights organization, gave out the news in a press conference in which Pablo wasn’t present. “It’s for the better of our democracy”, remarked Carlotto, and sentenced that Athanasiu Laschan is shocked and that now “we have to give him time, take care of him and be with him”.

Athanasiu Laschan was abducted along with his parents on abril 15th, 1976, when he was only five months and a half, and was found in Buenos Aires at the age of 38 thanks to the investigation of the Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo.

He is the son of Angel Athanasiu and Frida Laschan, both members of the Movement of Revolutionary Left (MIR in Spanish), who ran away to Buenos Aires after the military coup of 1973.

When they arrived to Argentina, both took part of the PRT-ERP guerrilla and became the object of persecution during the military dictatorship until in April 1976 were abducted in the hotel in which they were living by the security forces that were acting the framework of the Plan Condor (military coordination and cooperation operation between Chile, Argentina and other countries of South America to abduct and kill communists).
Even though his parents are still missing, the baby was taken care as of their own and with a false date of birth (January 1st, 1976) by a marriage with close ties to the military regime.

The baby-taker is currently detained under an accusation of crimes against humanity.
Pablo was contacted by members of the Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo on April and barely a month ago he voluntarily decided to take an ADN test that determined his belonging to the Athanasiu Laschan family.

Next to the Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo, were the aunts of Athanasiu Laschan, whom were also very excited by the discovery of their nephew.

“Depredators die and don’t confess”, asserted De Carlotto, and remembered that Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo, just like other entities, are fighting a battle against time for the re-encounter of the oppressed families and their lost relatives.
It’s estimated that nearly 500 minors were stolen from their parents during the Argentinean dictatorship, which disappeared nearly 30,000 people.
Can’t even imagine how hard it must be to find out that the most important things about you are false. Your parents, your country, your family, even your birthday… All the best to Pablo.

Kudos to Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo. They’re doing a great work in Argentina. I wish we had such an organized human rights group here in Chile too.
