There were some articles in the press about a new/old (hard to keep track) against mr. Zorreguieta the last days. However the Argentinian examining magistrate Daniel Rafacas said that the situation has not changed and for now mr. Zorreguieta will not be prosecuted. Rafacas says that the lawyer of the victims may have another point of view, but with the current evidence a trial will be out of the question.

Trial will probably never happen.

Still when a decent Dutch newspaper like the Trouw publish articles like this, Maxima must be very proud to be crown princess of a democracy like Holland.

Argentine father of soon-to-be Dutch Queen can’t escape history as dictatorship minister - The Washington Post

Her fathers past remains controversial and troublesome. Hard to believe his claims he knew nothing about what was going on during the regime since it was so widely reported on during that era. Definitely the right decision to stay away on April 30th.

It is a bit sad though, for Maxima and WA, to not have her Dad there. Like her wedding (though Claus was around), April 30 is going to be a big day for her. A Dad is an important figure in a persons life and it's a little heartbreaking to not have him there for the wedding or inauguration.

Somethings cannot be forgotten or forgiven and if his biggest penalty is that he could not attend a wedding or an inauguration he should count himself lucky. He can watch it on tv or online if he is interested. April 30th is a state occassion and not a private family event. Luckily Maxima is astute enough to avoid the controversy before it could begin.

I completely agree. There were riots over the lack of housing at Beatrix's investiture and I'm sure the DRF, government and police would like to not see a repeat. Quite likely there would be protests if Jorge were present.

It is what it is. Maxima is a class act. She knows her father brings problems, so she does what she has to.

I have read reports that the Argentinians don't understand why her parents cannot be invited to such an event. Has it been so long that they do not recall what life was like under the junta or perhaps it is generally not known he was a minister in that dictatorship?

I do not know about the Argentinians but as far as the Dutch are concerned I think that they in general do not care or understand why Zorreguieta will not be present at the wedding.
