Leader of Argentine Anti-semitic Movement Arrested in Buenos Aires

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Patricio Errecalde Pueriedon, secretary of the National Revolutionary Tacuara movement which he publicly identified last June as a paramilitary anti-Zionist group, was arrested today on charges of subversion.

The leader of the rightwing movement also said in June that it had arms and training and was in close sympathy with the Arab states against Zionism. He also said “we have no problems with Jews as long as they are not Zionist.” Other leaders of the movement were arrested shortly after he made his public statement on the aims of his movement.
