No Charges Against Lockman

A press attache of the
Argentinian Embassy says
that Jaime Lockman — the
first Argentinian Jew ar-
rested after the 1976 mili-
tary coup — was detained
on charges of "youth politi-

`Montoneros' terrorist
group (and) acting as finan-

group ( Comandos Re-
volucionarios' through the
use of a checking account on
the First City National
Bank of the city of Parana."

Joseph Polakoff, the JTA
Bureau Chief in Washing-

guarantees the right of
emigration for citizens held
in prison without being
charged with a crime.

The report also expressed
fear that Lockman would
not be able to survive the
harsh prison conditions be-
cause of his heart condition.
After his arrest, Lockman
was transferred to Dawson
prison in south Argentina,
known for its harsh condi-
"With regard to Mr.
Lockman's health," the
letter by Ezcurra stated,
"this Embassy has been
informed that he has a
coronary condition with
a soft systolic murmur.
He is being treated with
persantin and valium.
According to his last
periodical medical check
up (June 28, 1979), he has
been found to be in good
physical condition."
The Argentinian official
also claimed that Lockman,
who had been a car dealer in
Cordoba, was detained June
