Argentine military official resigns over ship seizure

BUENOS AIRES -- The head of Argentina's military intelligence resigned Thursday in the wake of a warship seizure by Ghana over a bond dispute, a source said.

The boat, which went to the West African nation for a training mission, was seized by port officials in Tema this month under a court order secured by a Cayman Islands investment group that claims Buenos Aires owes it more than US$370 million (283 million euros).

“Puente Olivera, director of strategic military intelligence has handed in her resignation: she considered it appropriate to do so,” a government source who requested anonymity told AFP without providing more details.

The resignation follows that of the commander of the Argentine navy, Carlos Alberto Paz on Monday.
