Grandmothers of Plaza de Mayo present identity of the 110th grandchild

Human rights organisation The Grandmothers of Plaza de Mayo today revealed the identity of the 110th grandchild to be reunited with their families, after being taken from birth parents during the military dictatorship of 1976-83.

In an act held in the Grandmothers' offices by leader Estela de Carlotto, it was announced that the unnamed individual was the daughter of Oscar Rómulo Gutiérrez and Liliana Isabel Acuña, who were kidnapped on August 26 1976. At the time of their disappearance, Acuña was five months pregnant. 

The girl entered the Grandmothers organisation on October 31, professing doubts over her origin. Thanks to DNA testing and the cooperation of the National Bank of Genetic Data, Carlotto explained, a match was established between the girl and her parents.

Uncle Ricardo Gutiérrez was present at the ceremony, and after expressing his excitement at meeting his niece for the first time highlighted the work of the Grandmothers: "It is not an individual act, it is a social act, because it makes us better as a society."

Gutiérrez added a "special recognition" for his niece, "who wanted to look closer for the truth."

"This was a pregnancy of many years that finally ended in a birth," he stated.
