The offensive midfielder of River Plate and international Colombian Juan Quintero (26 years) asked on Monday for explanations on the disappearance of his father twenty-four years ago, while he carried out his military service under the orders of the new chief of Land Force. “I don’t want to take advantage of the new general of the army taking office (Enrique) Zapateiro […], but I hope to be able to start a dialogue very soon and know what happened ”, said the player on his Twitter account.
“I have the right as a son to know what happened to my father […] because I suffered and saw my family suffering from psychological problems ”, added Quintero, who was only two years old when his father Jaime Quintero disappeared in 1995.
General Zapateiro, then captain in the unit where Jaime Quintero served, was whitewashed by the courts in 2001, but the relatives of the disappeared continue to ask him where he is. According to his family, Zapateiro ordered Jaime Quintero to go to Medellin after an alleged altercation between the two men about acts of indiscipline, but he never arrived at his destination.
