Maxima's father will avoid inauguration
By The Holland Times Wed. 30 January 2013
The father of Argentina-born Princess Maxima, who is due to become the Dutch queen when her husband Willem-Alexander takes the throne on 30 April, is likely to avoid the celebrations and inauguration ceremony, reports the Irish Times.
The decision was apparently made by Princess Maxima, who wishes to avoid the protests that are likely to happen should her father, Jorge Horacio Zorreguieta, who was a government minister in the dictatorship of General Jorge Rafael Videla, be present.
Zorreguieta is accused of complicity in the deaths of Argentinean citizens during the violent 1970s military junta.
Neither Mr Zorreguieta nor Maxima’s mother, Maria del Carmen Cerruti Carricart, is expected to travel to Amsterdam for the ceremony.
