The World : Argentine Coup Plot Told

April 22, 1985

Argentine President Raul Alfonsin said some opponents of his 16-month-old civilian government have approached high-ranking military officers to suggest staging a coup. Alfonsin, speaking in a nationally televised address, did not elaborate on the alleged plot but said it was disclosed by the officers to whom the overtures were made. "The situation is being controlled," he added. Alfonsin's elected government took office in December, 1983, to end nearly eight years of right-wing military dictatorship.
