Disappearance of María Esther Ravelo de Vega - File N° 3223

Alejandra Fernández Ravelo, who lives in Sante Fe, presented a deposition to the Commission's delegation in that city on the disappearance of her daughter María Esther Ravelo de Vega, who at the time was living with her husband and small child in the city of Rosario. The deponent says:

On 15 September 1977 my daughter telephoned, asking me to go to Rosario to collect her son (my grandson) because her husband was ill. As we arranged, I arrived three days later at the house of a relative, Agustín Simonsini, where my grandson had been left by some young people driving a white Renault 4. My daughter used to live in a house at No. 2815, Calle Santiago which she owned and which included a soda siphon store which she also owned. When I passed the house on my way to collect my grandson, I saw an army truck being loaded with all my daughter's possessions and I could do nothing to prevent it. After a while I went back and found the store closed; a man spoke to me through a window and I was able to see a typewriter and a table inside. He told me the property now belonged to the government because it had previously belonged to some subversives. A neighbour also told me that a dead man had been found in the house but it was not my son-in-law. Both my daughter and son-in-law were blind.
