Home of Nobel Peace Laureate Adolfo Perez Esquivel Looted

BUENOS AIRES – Nobel Peace Laureate Adolfo Perez Esquivel reported Monday that a house he owns in the Argentine city of Mar del Plata was looted over the weekend, and went on to slam the “impunity” such assaults currently enjoy.

Perez Esquivel said on Argentine channel TN that several burglars took apart the house he owns during a robbery in which they stole toilets, dismantled the kitchen and destroyed almost all the furniture as well as the swimming pool.

The well-known defender of human rights said he learned of the robbery from the neighbors, then complained that this wasn’t the only assault that has occurred in the area, where, he said, “last year 42 houses were robbed” and not one of the criminals was every arrested.

“There is an absolute and total impunity,” he said, adding that it was obvious it took the thieves “many hours to do this and destroy everything the way they did,” something that could only occur because of the few patrols keeping watch on the area.

Perez Esquivel, 83, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1980 for his commitment to the non-violent defense of human rights during the military dictatorships of Latin America.
