  • Description

    EX-PRESIDENT JUAN PERON OF ARGENTINA HAS SO FAR MADE NO MOVE ON THE SPANISH GOVERNMENT'S ULTIMATUM TO DROP ALL POLITICAL ACTIVITY, OR LEAVE SPAIN. GENERAL PERON REMAINS UNDER STRICT POLICE GUARD IN THE LUXURY HOTEL AT TORREMOLINOS ON SPAIN'S COSTA DEL SOL.

    WITH THE GENERAL IN THE HOTEL ARE HIS WIFE, 29-YEAR-OLD ISABELITA, AND 32-YEAR-OLD DELIA PARODI, LEADER OF THE PERONISTA WOMEN'S ORGANISATIONS, WHO HAS BEEN AT PERON'S SIDE CONSTANTLY OVER THE PAST TWO MONTHS. UNDER THE SPANISH GOVERNMENT'S ULTIMATUM DELIA PARODI HAS BEEN GIVEN UNTIL MIDNIGHT TONIGHT (MONDAY) TO LEAVE THE COUNTRY.

    YESTERDAY (SUNDAY) THE TWO WOMEN LEFT THE HOTEL FOR AN OUTING IN THE GREY CAR WHICH BROUGHT PERON AND HIS ENTOURAGE FROM SEVILLE - WHERE HE LANDED AFTER HIS RECENT ABORTIVE FLIGHT TO SOUTH AMERICA - TO TORREMOLINOS. EVER SINCE HE ARRIVED IN THE RESORT TOWN MORE THAN A WEEK AGO, THE GENERAL HAS BEEN CONFINED TO HIS SUITE WHICH INCLUDES A TERRACE OVERLOOKING THE BAY, WHERE HE TAKES HIS EXERCISE. THE HOTEL IS BESIEGED BY HORDES OF REPORTERS HOPING TO GET A GLIMPSE OF THE ELUSIVE ONE-TIME DICTATOR OR PICK UP THE LATEST HINT AS TO WHAT HIS DECISION WILL BE.

    ANOTHER OF PERON'S CLOSE ADVISERS WHO HAS BEEN TOLD TO LEAVE SPAIN, IS THE FINANCIER JORGE ANTONIO. YESTERDAY HE VISITED THE GENERAL AND SPENT ABOUT 90-MINUTES IN CONVERSATION.

    (UNDER THE TERMS OF THE GOVERNMENT ULTIMATUM, GENERAL PERON HAS BEEN GIVEN UNTIL JANUARY 11TH TO MAKE UP HIS MIND ON WHETHER TO LEAVE SPAIN FOR GOOD, OR GIVE A WRITTEN STATEMENT OF HIS INTENTION TO GIVE UP POLITICS COMPLETELY. TO GIVE UP POLITICS FOREVER, WOULD MEAN ABANDONING HIS PLANS OF RETURNING TO ARGENTINA AND POWER. SOME REPORTS SAY GENERAL PERON HAS BEEN OFFERED ASYLUM IN SEVERAL COUNTRIES INCLUDING THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC, CUBA AND ALGERIA BUT NONE OF THE OFFERS HAVE BEEN PUBLICLY CONFIRMED.)
