Document signed: "Peron", 2 pages, 8¾x12¾. Buenos Aires, 1945 February 15.Also signed "José D. Sarmiento", Lieutenant, Third Division. The document bears several processing stamps. In Spanish, loosely translated. Peron rejects the request of ex-sergeant Jorge Atilio Correa for copies of verdicts rendered against him by the military authorities. The request is denied on the grounds that the accused gave no special reason to justify his receipt of copies, and because the request does not conform to Article 163 of the Military Justice Code. The request is denied, with note of it sent to the personnel department. 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. Irregular left, top and bottom edges. File holes at left edge. Lightly stained on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
