Document signed: "Perón", 2 pages, 8¾x12¾. Buenos Aires, 1945 February 15.Also signed "José D. Sarmiento", Lt. Col commanding the Third Division, and by a sergeant in the records office. Ink processing stamps on both pages. In Spanish, loosely translated. Sergeant Carlos Alberto Delacour of the 10th Hussars of Pueyreddon, now located in the military pavilion of the national prison, has requested revision of the sentence imposed on him by the military authorities for corruption, immorality and violation of military values. Noting that the request does not fit any of the rules of Article 438 of the Code of Military Justice, Perón denies the petition and orders that it be recorded in the records of the general personnel department. JuanD. 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. Infamously,Peron's government kept Nazi war criminals safe after WWII, protecting them from international leaders who wanted to try them for their horrific crimes. File holes at left edge. Irregular top, bottom and left edges. Lightly soiled at margins. Otherwise, fine condition.
