  • Description

    A senior official of the Argentina affiliate of France's Renault motor company was shot dead on Tuesday (27 August) in a daylight ambush by several gunmen at Cordoba.

    Senor Ricardo Goya - labour relations manager of the IKA-Renault plant, was killed on his way to work. His car was blocked by several vehicles just outside the violence-ridden city and riddled with bullets. Two other people in the car, a man and a woman, were not hurt.

    The IKA-Renault plant only two miles form the spot where Goya was murdered - had been hit by a crippling two-month-old strike for higher wages.

    Goya's death brought to 11 the number of major assassinations and kidnapping - not counting mass guerrilla assaults on army and police installations - in the two month since Senora Maria Estela Peron took over as the world's first woman President.

    In response to Goya's murder, President Peron lashed out at political violence and pledged that her government would keep moving ahead despite "cowardly and mercenary assassinations."
