.- On August 29 Archbishop Hector Aguer of La Plata, Argentina, revealed he had received a death threat from an anonymous source “recommending” him to cease expressing his opinions publicly about the Argentine government. According to the Infobae.com website, the archbishop reported the threat to local law enforcement, and when informed of the incident, federal officials contacted the archbishop to assure him of their concern and that the necessary measures to protect his security would be taken.

Archdiocesan officials said the archbishop received a phone call from a man who said the prelate would “not be coming back to the chancery because we will kill you first, and if it is not today and you keep talking, we will do it at any moment.”

Archbishop Aguer said he was “surprised, concerned and disgusted” because it was the first such threat he has received.  He continued his activities as normal traveling to a parish on the outskirts of  La Plata, where he had scheduled a week-long visit.
