Army Rebellion in Argentina 1987

[ 1987 ]

On or about April 17, 1987, soldiers led by Lieutenant Colonel Aldo Rico seized the Infantry School at Campo de Mayo near Buenos Aires (also called the Monte Caseras barracks), protesting the treatment of an officer who had been cashiered for refusing to appear in court on human rights abuse charges. The rebellion was suppressed by loyal troops by April 19. There were extensive reports, after the event, that II Corps officers had failed to move promptly against the rebels.
