Judge Servini de Cubría postpones recovered grandson’s testimony
Following a request filed by Grandmothers of Plaza de Mayo, Federal Judge María Romilda Servini de Cubría decided to postpone the date for Estela Barnes de Carlotto’s newly-found grandson to deliver his testimony as a witness in the legal investigation into his appropriation.
The judge was the person who on Tuesday informed the head of the human rights organization that the son of her daughter Laura, murdered by the death squads of the last dictatorship had been found.
On Thursday, Servini de Cubría issued a subpoena for next week but simultaneously Grandmothers of Plaza de Mayo lawyer Alan Iud filed a request before the magistrate to postpone the hearing. As it was expected, the judge agreed with the request.
Meanwhile, Servini de Cubría will move forward with the probe to determine how the baby was taken to the city of Olavarría. She will have to determine if he was born at the Buenos Aires City Central Military Hospital or in Olmos Penitentiary hospital, located next to the clandestine detention centre known as La Cacha, where his mother was held.
Servini de Cubría filed a request for Ignacio’s forged birth certificate from the Olavarría Civil Registry. That document can be useful to determine who was the doctor who signed it. There were medical doctors who worked along with the repressors and are involved in other cases of baby snatching.
