Tribunal de Menores de Mercedes - Cause number 32.202 Letter from Manoli to Debbie
Tribunal de Menores de MERCEDES
Juez Dr. Julio M. Cámpora
Provinicia de Buenos Aires
On March 12, 1991, Ruth Frouman died. Her surviving relatives immediately informed members of the Family, including Stuart Baylin and Claire Borowik, of this event by mail, telephone and obituaries published in U.S. newspapers. Her surviving relatives in the United States and Argentina also sent letters and made phone calls to the last known addresses and phone numbers for her missing four children. Yet in August and September 1991, her eldest son sent a letter and birthday card to his mother and letters to his aunts which made clear that neither he nor his brothers had been informed of Ruth Frouman's death months earlier and that, Family leadership in Argentina failed to give him and his brothers the many letters and messages which were sent to them. It eventually became known that The Family did not inform all of Ruth Frouman's children of her death until 1992. When Emmanuel Frouman died in February 1994, his two abducted siblings still in the Family and being sought by surviving relatives and judicial authorities in Argentina, the United States and other countries, were also not informed of his death until many months later.
A letter dated September 15th, 1991 and an envelope postmarked August 10th, 1991 (with the notation "Attn: Ruth Frouman" written on it) were submitted as evidence in the case referenced above.
