A decade after guiding Uruguay back to democratic rule, President-elect Julio Maria Sanguinetti will oversee the country's entry into a regional free-trade zone.

After spending 15 days in jail, the Fassanos are free pending an appellate court ruling.

But when the military seized power after several years of political turmoil and terrorism, Uruguay's noble traditions were forgotten.
