The declassified documents will include files on the diplomatic acts by Bolivian dictatorships against leftist opponents as part of Operation Condor.

The Bolivian Foreign Ministry said Tuesday it will declassify diplomatic documents from the 1966 to 1979 dictatorships so that relatives of the dead and disappeared can obtain new information about these crimes.

Ken Wiwa, dead at 47

Quote:

He was the eldest son of Ken Saro-Wiwa, an activist for the Ogoni people who was one of nine people executed by Nigeria’s military government in 1995 after they campaigned against the oil multinational Royal Dutch Shell for polluting the Niger Delta with its vast network of pipelines and oil fields. Their secret trials and executions sparked global condemnation and led to Nigeria’s suspension from the Commonwealth.
