Emilio Eduardo Massera

Emilio Eduardo Massera was an Argentine Naval military officer who was a member of the National Reorganization Process and a participant in the March 24 1976 coup. Many considered Massera to have masterminded the junta's Dirty War against political opponents, which resulted in nearly 13,000 deaths and disappearances, according to official records. Human rights groups put the toll closer to 30,000. The character Emilio is named after him.
