The group Quebracho, along with another group, ‘Patriotic Resistance’, found in Uruguay, plan to corner the ship, now with Uruguayan flag, that was in the Falklands War.
Fernando Esteche, leader of Quebracho reported to some media, “They do not want to surround it, it is an invention of the press, but hopefully they do, the intention is to make the change of flags. And we agree with the group that is in Uruguay. The intention is not to corner the boat but to enter, to change the flags and sing the Argentine anthem”.
The newspaper El Pais of Uruguay, “This group was discovered by military intelligence, operates under the umbrella of being veterans of the Falklands, communicates through Facebook. Their ‘mission’ as they call it, is apparently returning the ‘identity’ and ‘flag’ to a ship which they call ‘war hero’ and that during the conflict with England involved in support roles to the naval fleet Argentina as a hospital ship, and was later captured by British forces. “
“The ship is now called” Audax II “-” Yehuin “in those years, has now met Uruguayan flag and service to the shipping company Christophersen. It affected the transport of air defenses so that two ships can abarloarse offshore. “
According to a post posted on Facebook for 24 hours by a user who is identified as Diego Salce “The boat is in Uruguay, we got out of hand, but before the end of March we will return its identity and flag!” , “a command of the resistance just place the Yehuin in Punta del Este. They are there guarding. We will repatriate it!”.
