A hero within the human rights community, Judge Baltasar Garzón is 
perhaps best known for indicting and issuing an arrest warrant against 
Gen. Augusto Pinochet, the former dictator of Chile, but he has also 
brought cases against Russian mafia leaders; Osama bin Laden; and the 
former Argentine naval officer Ricardo Miguel Cavallo for genocide and 
torture committed during the Argentine military's "dirty war" of the 
1970s and '80s.  Last year, he made international news again, when the 
Spanish judiciary suspended him for opening an investigation into 
General Franco's crimes during the Spanish Civil War.
*Judge Garzón will speak in Spanish, with simultaneous interpretation 
provided.*
