Four Arrested as Runoff Candidates in Argentina Face Threats


Nov 20, 2023

As the runoff election for the Argentine presidency nears, candidate Sergio Massa and his son have become the target of threats. Five people are under investigation for making these threats, and three men and a woman were arrested. A teenager in Salta was also arrested for threatening to kill Massa’s 17-year-old son on Instagram. The aggressive tone of the election campaign has led to disruptions at an opera performance where Milei was booed by part of the audience. He describes himself as an anarcho-capitalist and has caused a stir with populist slogans. His opponents accused him of standing for a “dictatorship” and accompanied the boos with slogans. Meanwhile, the threats against Massa and his family have led to legal investigation and personal protection orders.
