Omar Graffigna

Omar Graffigna is a former Argentine Air force commander and was part of the National Reorganization Process. Graffigna was indicted for kidnapping, torture, robbery, invasion of property and forgery of public documents during the historic Trial of the Juntas in 1985. His case benefited from a ruling during the sentencing phase of the trial that punishment should be determined by the relative roles of each branch of the Argentine Armed Forces in each case, thereby lessening sentences for the Air Force commanders on trial. Graffigna and his successor, General Basilio Lami Dozo, were acquitted of all charges. Alongside Basilio Lami Dozo and Reynaldo Bignone he is one of the last survivng members of the dictatorship. The character Omar is named after him.
