Such request is a consequence of the error made by the indicted when he entered to his unit dressing as a civilian, which reveals the punishment that he will receive at the right moment, because not even the simulacrum of fusillade made him act better. Even more, he has already been punished for arbitrary punishments against his troop. So, due to his lack of aptitudes to work for the army, we make this solicitude.

The Auditor General of War and Marine proposes to the Ministry of War that it recommend a draft Presidential decree. The decree, for which justifications are given in the preamble, would reorganize certain Ministry functions. JUAN DOMINGO PERÓN (1895-1974) was part of a military junta, which seized power in 1943 and made him secretary of labor and social welfare. Promoted to Vice President and Minister of War in 1944 but purged by suspicious fellow officers in 1945, Perón was released after massive protests by the labor unions whose support he had cultivated. Perón was elected President in 1946, serving until overthrown in a military coup (1956). Peron ruled with authoritarian methods, but his program of nationalism and economic justice appealed to many of his countrymen. While Perón lived in exile in Spain, his Peronista movement remained a powerful force in Argentine politics. He once again served as President from 1973 until his death. His first wife, Maria Eva Duarte (1919-1952), affectionately called Evita, helped him as de facto Minister of Health and Labor, acquiring a mass following of her own. EDELMIRO JULIAN FARRELL (1887-1980) was one in a series of military strongmen to occupy the Argentine Presidency between the overthrow of popularly elected President Yrigoyen in 1930 and the ascendance of Perón. He held the Presidency from 1944 until the latter's election 2 years later. GUILLERMO BEGHE was the Chief of the Indicted Individuals office in Argentina. Sealed. Original notations and stamps. Binder holes in left margin. Lightly soiled at left margin. Otherwise, fine condition.
