From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

La Opinión was an Argentine newspaper, founded by the journalist Jacobo Timerman in 1971. Its ideology was broadly left-of-centre.

It remained in existence for six years: in 1977 it was shut down and expropriated during the military government of the National Reorganisation Process that followed the 24 March 1976 coup d'état. On 15 April 1977, Timerman, while serving as the paper's editor, was abducted by a paramilitary group under the orders of police chief Ramón Camps and kept in detention for a period of two and a half years until his release in September 1979.
