On June 28, 1993, Argentine police filed a claim was filed in the Minority Court of Mercedes that the following crimes had taken place in Family Homes for which (Borowick) shared leadership responsibility: rape, statutory rape, withholding of minors, fraud, reduction to servitude, illegal privation of liberty and forgery of ID documents. Copies of all the proceedings in the Minority Court of Mercedes were transferred to the San Isidro Federal Court. On September 1st., 1993, the San Isidro Federal Court ordered raids of Family Homes in Argentina, at which time (Borowick) and other adults were arrested for the following crimes: corruption of minors, reduction of persons to servitude, illegal privation of liberty, illegal retention and holding of persons against their will, and participation in an organization that promotes racial and religious discrimination..
A resolution of the San Martin Federal Court of Appeals on December 12th., 1993, revoked the arrests and ordered the release of Borowick and the other adults detained in the raids on Family Homes. The San Martin Federal Court did not issue an acquittal of the charges against Borowick and the other adults. Two of the court’s three judges, Dr. Alberto Mansur and Dr. Horacio E. Prack, were of the opinion that the case lacked sufficient evidence to merit the charges, and the case was returned to the Minority Court of Mercedes for further investigation.
The third Judge in the San Martin Federal Court of Appeals, Dr. Daniel Mario Rudi, cast a dissidenting vote. Dr. Rudi stated that conduct by Borowick and the other adults made them responsible for the crimes of corruption of minors, reduction of persons to servitude, illegal privation of physical liberty, racial and religious discrimination, alteration of the civil status a minor of ten years of age and forgery of documents. His dissenting vote qualified the charges against Borowick and the other adults so that they were released on the condition that investigation into their alleged crimes be continued by the Minority Court of Mercedes. A Cesnur research article published on The Family International website regarding Borowick's day in court does not indicate what took place after the case was remanded back to the Minority Court of Mercedes for further investigation. That same article also does not provide information regarding the ruling of the dissenting judge in the Argentine case involving Borowick's arrest.
- Should the article on Borowik be categorized under Category:Leaders, though she no longer holds a leadership role? Was she ever more than just a home leader? --Monger 09:25, 12 Apr 2005 (CDT)
- Claire was GAS of the biggest GAF area (including the Buenos Aires area) in Argentina for a long time, and was simultaneously shepherd of key Homes/Combos. The Argentina area was actually comprised of 3 countries, Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay, so the NASes were shepherds over 3 countries and not one. She and Cacho were longtime GASes of the central GAF. --WalkerJ 22:00, 12 Apr 2005 (CDT)
