Ford Motors is accused in criminal indictments with carrying out a campaign of 'management terrorism", in which union officials and workers were kidnapped, beaten, and tortured. According to the charges, enough evidence exists to show that Ford Company officials active took part in this activity.

In addition to the criminal charges against Ford, there is also a civil suit on behalf of 5,000 surviving workers who were tortured, beaten, threatened, electrocuted with cattle prods, and subjected to mock executions.

Under the former Argentina government, more than 30,000 individuals were "disappeared" and are presumed dead. The car of choice for these kidnappings? The Ford Falcon.
