Bielsa to scratch anti-Semitic norm


Nation at a Glance

Foreign Minister Rafael Bielsa will sign the order to end a seven-decade old secret internal ministerial norm which tacitly restricted Jewish immigration. The ceremony will be held at the Foreign Ministry with Interior Minister Aníbal Fernández, Natalio Wengrower, vice-president of the Raoul Wallenberg Foundation, investigative journalist Uki Goñi (a former Herald staffer) and Beatriz Gurevich taking part. Gurevich found the only existing original copy of the secret order at the Argentine Embassy in Stockholm.
