ARGENTINA Diego RODRIGUEZ LAGUENS, forestry expert (ingeniero forestal):
The judicial inquiry into the killing of Diego Rodriguez Laguens is reaching
a crucial stage.
There are reports that the provincial police, who under normal circumstances

establishing the circumstances of Diego Rodriguez Laguens' death.
Three police officers are in preventive detention pending the outcome of the
inquiry.
FURTHER RECOMMENDED ACTION: Please send telegrams/faxes/express and airmail
letters in Spanish, English or your own language:
- urging that the circumstances of Diego Rodriguez Laguens' death be thoroughly
investigated and that every step is taken to ensure that witnesses are allowed
to testify without fear of intimidation.

- urging the Minister of the Interior to provide the judicial inquiry with
the full assistance of the Federal Police.
