CFK receives Rattenbach report
President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner received the Rattenbach report, which contains information of the Malvinas war, during a ceremony at the Olivos presidential residence and announced that it will be accessible for everyone in the www.presidencia.gob.ar website.
The Head of State highlighted Lieutenant General Benjamín Rattenbach and deemed him”a very brave man” for writing the report, in which he criticized the military junta’s actions during the Malvinas conflict. “He must have been a very brave man. He must have written the report with much grief, but with a great deal of feeling and patriotism as well,” she added.
Fernández de Kirchner also added that “regardless of our religious and ideological convictions, the truth is only one.”
Vice-President Amado Boudou, Cabinet Chief Juan Manueal Abal Medina, Defence Minister Alberto Puricelli and the son of late Lieutenant Rattenbach, Augusto, also attended the ceremony.
