Case Against Argentine President Dismissed Yet Again

April 20, 2015  

An Argentine prosecutor on Monday dismissed allegations that President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner tried to derail an inquiry into the bombing of a Jewish center in 1994, Reuters reported.

Federal prosecutor Javier De Luca was assigned to the case by Argentina’s top appeals court after it had already been rejected by a lower court in February, a decision upheld by a lower appeals court on account of “lack of evidence”.

“There has been no crime,” De Luca told Reuters. In his official statement, he said his decision was “equivalent to a definitive sentence”.

The allegations were originally leveled by late prosecutor Alberto Nisman, who was found dead in his flat with a bullet wound to the head on January 18 the day before he was due to testify about them to parliament.

Nisman had accused the president of trying to cover up Iran’s alleged involvement in the truck bombing of the AMIA Jewish Community center in Buenos Aires in order to clinch a grains-for-oil deal with Tehran. Iran denies any involvement in the bombing.

It has been revealed that Nisman had drafted arrest warrants for Kirchner and for Foreign Minister Hector Timerman before he was found dead.

Nisman’s mysterious death spawned a slew of conspiracy theories, some involving Fernandez de Kirchner.

The president has suggested the prosecutor was manipulated by disgruntled former intelligence agents who killed him to smear her.
