Summary
This law sets up a committee within the Ministry of Defence to shed light on the facts concerning possible war crimes committed during the war between Argentina and the United Kingdom in the South Atlantic in 1982. For this purpose, the committee may receive denunciations and evidence, investigate the whereabouts of Argentine nationals suspected of being involved and hear their testimony and statements. It may also denounce to judicial authorities any attempt to conceal or destroy evidence. The committee was instructed to issue a final report within 180 days after the date of its creation.
