I hope it is not true that political motives are behind the inquiry. Because those left behind by the victims of summary killings and unexplained disappearances in the city just want to move on with their lives.
Injecting politics into the ongoing investigation definitely muddles up the issue. It is unfair to point fingers at people without clear evidence of their participation in the wrongdoing.
It is also unfair to ascribe sinister motives to people who are just doing their jobs. What matters most now is to find out the truth which, in the eyes of the families of the victims (the desaparecidos), is "what really happened to those who disappeared."
For someone like me who has waited for 4 long years, finding the skeletal remains or whatever remnant of my missing husband will forever close that dark chapter of my life and allow me to take a step forward.
The bones that have been found may not even be of James but they definitely belonged to someone whose own family had suffered like us. I am sure they would welcome the answers that have long eluded them.
This new development has opened up old, deep wounds. I wish I can turn a blind eye and remain detached. After all, I have long moved on... or so I thought. They have shattered my illusion.
