Bussi not dead but in critical condition, officials assure
Tucumán’s former oppressor Antonio Bussi is in critical condition, close family members said, and assured that he is “dying”. Last Monday, the former Tucumán de facto governor was hospitalized due to a heart condition and even though he remains stable, his situation is “irreversible.”
A few minutes after 2 pm, Health Vice-Minister Gabriel Yedlin tweeted on his personal account that Bussi had passed away.
Even though several attempts to communicate with Yedlin were made, no one at his office would confirm the vice-minister’s information.
“He’s busy and he can’t be interrupted,” they said.
Almost one hour after breaking the news, the vice-minister deleted the tweet from his account.
The former military official accused of human rights violations during the last dictatorship was the de facto administrator of the Tucumán province from 1976 to 1978.
