Four Arrested as Runoff Candidates in Argentina Face Threats

The election campaign for the Argentine presidency has been aggressive, with candidate Sergio Massa and his son being threatened by five individuals. Three men and a woman were arrested in connection with the threats, while a teenager was arrested in Salta for threatening to kill the 17-year-old son of presidential candidate Massa on Instagram.

The election campaign has been marked by disruptions, including an opera performance where Javier Milei, the ultra-liberal populist running against Massa, was booed by part of the audience. Milei describes himself as an anarcho-capitalist and has caused controversy with his populist slogans. His opponents have accused him of standing for a “dictatorship” and accompanied the boos with slogans.

Meanwhile, legal investigations and personal protection orders are being put in place for Massa and his family due to the threats they have received. There are also links to criminal attorney directories scattered throughout the content.
