(Never Again) - Report of Conadep
Some final reflections
It is very difficult in the context of a struggle against subversion to find a valid reason for imprisoning and torturing people of the age we have referred to. The majority were taken as hostages.
The real search was for their children and they could be the most direct way of finding them. They were captured, robbed, tortured, and made to disappear, in many cases with the intention of forcing them to betray their children.
On other occasions they were kidnapped because they refused to be intimidated by the reign of terror imposed by a military dictatorship and went on struggling to find their children alive.
