Part I
The Repression

Nunca Más (Never Again) - Report of Conadep  - 1984


El Banco (PAC)


Near the junction of the Ricchieri motorway with the ring road (National Highway No. 4) at Bridge 12. The 11th Women's Division of the Buenos Aires Provincial Police currently has its offices in these buildings.


The building reserved for the secretly held prisoners was surrounded by other old buildings which belonged to the Buenos Aires Police. Entry was from a car park through a double steel gate with bars. To the left, a corridor from which three torture rooms led off, one of them with a small toilet annex. Further on, the infirmary. On the right, intelligence offices and the photographic laboratory, next a 'lion's cage' or collective cell, later changed to an electrical workshop. Separated from the previous section by a passage, nearly fifty very narrow cells or 'tubes', latrines, toilets, sink, showers, wash-basin and kitchen. 

There was a covered yard and another open one, whose walls were topped with glass.
