Argentina: Ex-Ford Execs Convicted of Kidnapping & Torture During Dirty War

HeadlineDec 14, 2018

In Argentina, a court convicted two former Ford Motor executives of aiding in the kidnapping and torture of 24 workers during the country’s military dictatorship in the 1970s. Pedro Müller and Héctor Francisco Sibilla were sentenced to 10 and 12 years in prison respectively. They were found guilty of providing the personal information of workers to military forces, as well as allowing interrogations inside the Ford factory. The case is the first time executives of a multinational corporation were found guilty of human rights crimes in Argentina. Lawyers for the victims have said they may also sue Ford in U.S. courts.
