Is it just Queen Maxima is in Argentina or did any of her children accompany her?

How was Jorge Zorreguieta percieved in Argentina these past years? Did he ever face legal investigation for the role in played in Videla's mass murders?

Neither in Argentina nor in the Netherlands attempts to prosecute Jorge Horacio Zorreguieta were succesful. He was seen as a technocrat leading the Department of Agriculture during the military junta. Crimes and misdemeanours under the military junta could not be linked to Máxima's father in person so any attempt for prosecution faced the problem: whát was the exact crime the father had to be prosecuted for?

If the crime was; "he worked for the state during the military junta", then this would apply to all the staff of the tax revenue service, the state schools, the public transportation, the air traffic control, the state energy company, etc. There needs to be link between a specific crime and an accused. This was not apparent in the case of the late Jorge Zorreguieta.

There were attempts by Argentinean human rights groups because in a Food Safety Agency (which was subordinate to the Department of Agriculture) there were "disappearances" (read: the Junta picked up opponents). Jorge Zorreguieta, at that moment a minister in Buenos Aires, denied he knew anything about those disappearances in said Food Safety Agency: that he was at the top of the Department did not mean he knew in detail what happened at all the departmental agencies and services in Argentina: there was a division between the military junta and the state administration. The activists trying to get "big fish Jorge" (after all father of the Dutch Queen) prosecuted failed in building a factual case which showed any relationship between these "disappearances" and Jorge Zorreguieta.
