The Search for Justice Continues After Santiago Maldonado Identified

Santiago Maldonado was last seen during an Argentine military police eviction operation against the Pu Lof Mapuche community in the Chubut department of Cushamen on Aug. 1. Witnesses say they saw the police shove the 28-year-old into a van and drive away.

On Oct. 20 - almost 3 months later - family members confirmed that a body found days before in the Chubut River, was that of the missing activist.

The Maldonado family have insisted that he was forcibly disappeared by state police and are demanding clarity and justice in this case.
