During conversation at 1800 this evening General Viola told me Jacobo Timerman was then being processed for expulsion from Argentina tonight. - He declined to provide destination, but implied it would be Israel. I said we were concerned about his safety and offered to do whatever we could in that regard. Viola said not to worry about that, they would take all possible steps to assure that he reached his destination safe and sound. He declined to provide flight number or airline, but press may soon have it since television newsmen have already learned Timerman has left his apartment and are speculating he will be leaving country. 3.
