Argentines find remains of Cuban diplomat slain by junta
Published August 02, 2012

Argentina's EAAF forensic anthropology team said that it identified the remains of a Cuban diplomat abducted 36 years ago by agents of the South American nation's 1976-1983 military regimes.

What turned out to be the remains of Crescencio Nicomedes Galañena Hernandez were discovered in June by some boys who spotted bones sticking out of cement-filled barrels while playing on a field in the Buenos Aires suburb of San Fernando.

The remains were then tested against a DNA database of people who were "disappeared" by the junta, the EAAF said.


The junta mounted a propaganda operation to suggest the two diplomats had defected, abandoning their posts at the Cuban Embassy "to enjoy the freedom of the western world," in the words of a note falsely attributed to Galañena and Cejas.
