Events[edit]

January[edit]

  • 12 January: Former president Isabel Martínez de Perón is arrested in Madrid, Spain, following a warrant issued by an Argentine judge investigating the forced disappearance of a student activist in 1976. Another warrant follows soon, as well as a request for her extradition to Argentina.[1][2]
  • 26 January: The wine-producing area of San Rafael, Mendoza is hit by a hailstorm, which ruins the grape harvest in the region and causes AR$50 million in damages.[3]

March[edit]

April[edit]

  • 9 April: Tens of thousands of demonstrators in Buenos Aires and other cities in Argentina protest against the death of Carlos Fuentealba, a school teacher having been severely injured by a tear gas canister fired by police during a protest the previous week over pay and working conditions.[5]
  • 10 April: Argentina's only icebreaker, ARA Almirante Irízar, catches fire while returning from her summer Antarctic campaign, 140 miles off Puerto Madryn. The ship is then towed to Puerto Belgrano, arriving on 20 April.[6]
  • 11 April: Among accusations of government tampering with economic statistics, the National Institute of Statistics and Census (INDEC) modifies previous inflation figures and announces that the basic food basket experienced 0.2% deflation in March.[7]
  • 11 April: Football: The semi-finals of Copa del Rey begin in Nou Camp. Argentinian Lionel Messi scored a spectacular goal against Getafe CF.That goal is very similar to a Diego Maradona's goal against England in Mexico World Cup 1986.Both of them passed six defenders including goalkeeper and scored.
  • 25 April: An Argentine federal court overturns the pardons issued to General Jorge Videla and former Admiral Emilio Massera following convictions received for their activities during the "Dirty War" of the 1970s. The repeal of the pardons is largely symbolic, since the two are already under house arrest and serving lengthy sentences for other crimes.
