Ex-officer accused of human rights crimes in Argentina found living in Berlin

The former Argentinean commander Luis Esteban Kyburg was located in the Friedrichshain neighbourhood in Berlin. He has lived in the city since 2012.

Kyburg was charged with human rights crimes during Argentina’s dictatorship, as the alleged commander of an elite navy unit believed responsible for the deaths of at least 150 people.

German authorities would refuse the extradition of Kyburg, as he has a German passport, so the decision to initiate criminal action against the repressor is in the hands of the Berlin prosecution.
