Answer back ASPEI
Attn. Dr. Carlos Chagas
President
Pontifical Academy of Sciences
Vatican City
The Committee on Human Rights of the National Academy of Sciences has made repeated inquiries to Argentine authorities since April 1977 about the whereabouts and well being of the Argentine physicists Federico Alvarez Rojas, Gabriela Carabelli, Antonio Misetich and Eduardo Pasquini who are among the disappeared persons. We would appreciate your asking his holiness on the occasion of the visit to Argentina to intervene on behalf of these scientists and for other disappeared persons so that relief may be obtained.
Respectfully,
Christian Anfinsen
