Brigadier General Basilio Arturo Ignacio Lami Dozo (born 1 February 1929)[1] is a member of the Argentine Air Force. He participated in the military dictatorship known as the National Reorganisation Process (1976-1983) and, along with Leopoldo Fortunato Galtieri and Jorge Isaac Anaya, was a member of the Third Military Junta that ruled Argentina between 1981 and 1982.

In the 1985 Trial of the Juntas he was charged with, and acquitted of, acts of torture, making false declarations, and kidnappings.[2]

In 1989 he was sentenced to an eight-year prison term in the criminal proceedings that arose from the 1982 Falklands War (Spanish: Guerra de las Malvinas), in which he had served as commander-in-chief of the Air Force. In 1990 he received a presidential pardon from Carlos Menem and was allowed to keep his military rank.

In 2003 the Spanish justice system sought his extradition in order to stand trial in Spain for crimes against humanity committed during the dictatorship. Initially the government of Spanish Prime Minister José María Aznar ruled the extradition inadmissible but, in 2005, the Supreme Court overturned that decision and ordered extradition proceedings to go ahead.
