AMIA Bomb­ing

COMMENT: As set forth in in FTR #‘s 835 and 836, the “inves­ti­ga­tion” into the 1994 AMIA bomb­ing in Argenti­na touch­es on a num­ber of very sen­si­tive areas. We were skep­ti­cal that the sus­pi­cious death of pros­e­cu­tor Alber­to Nis­man would pro­duce any defin­i­tive changes in the way the case was han­dled.

A syn­op­tic account of key indi­vid­u­als, insti­tu­tions and events in the AMIA inves­ti­ga­tion: sev­er­al peo­ple linked to for­mer Argen­tin­ian pres­i­dent Car­los Men­em; indi­vid­u­als linked to the Iran-Con­tra scan­dal; neo-Nazi ele­ments in Argenti­na; inves­ti­ga­tions into fugi­tive Nazi war crim­i­nals; the res­ig­na­tions of two jus­tice min­is­ters involved in the AMIA inves­ti­ga­tion; the sus­pi­cious deaths of numer­ous indi­vid­u­als linked to one or anoth­er of the ele­ments fig­ur­ing in sev­er­al relat­ed inves­ti­ga­tions; evi­den­tiary trib­u­taries link­ing the AMIA bomb­ing to the Okla­homa City Bomb­ing, the bomb­ing of Pan Am flight 103 over Locker­bie, Scot­land and the Achille Lau­ro hijack­ing in 1985.

We coun­sel exam­in­ing the back­ground of the case–presented in the shows linked above–to bet­ter under­stand the com­plex­i­ties inher­ent in the inves­ti­ga­tion.

 Now, fol­low­ing Nis­man­’s death, the crim­i­nal com­plaint draft­ed by him against pres­i­dent Cristi­na Fer­nan­dez de Kirch­n­er has been dis­missed as not being “min­i­mal­ly” cred­i­ble.

This comes as no sur­prise. We would be sur­prised if the inves­ti­ga­tion were ever to get on track.

“Case Against Argen­tie Pres­i­dent, Brought by Pros­e­cu­tor Who Died, Is Dis­missed” by Jonathan Gilbert; The New York Times; 2/27/2015.

An Argen­tine judge on Thurs­day dis­missed crim­i­nal alle­ga­tions against Pres­i­dent Cristi­na Fer­nán­dez de Kirch­n­er that had been brought by a pros­e­cu­tor who had accused her of con­spir­ing to shield Iran­ian offi­cials from respon­si­bil­i­ty for the dead­ly bomb­ing of a Jew­ish com­mu­ni­ty cen­ter here in 1994.

Judge Daniel Rafe­cas decid­ed that the crim­i­nal com­plaint the pros­e­cu­tor, Alber­to Nis­man, put for­ward before his mys­te­ri­ous death last month was not suf­fi­cient to open an inves­ti­ga­tion of the pres­i­dent. In the 63-page deci­sion, Judge Rafe­cas said that the alle­ga­tions did not “min­i­mal­ly hold up” and that there was “not even cir­cum­stan­tial evi­dence” point­ing to Mrs. Kirch­n­er.

The crim­i­nal case, which had been revived by anoth­er pros­e­cu­tor after Mr. Nisman’s death, sought to charge the pres­i­dent, the for­eign min­is­ter and oth­er polit­i­cal sup­port­ers of Mrs. Kirch­n­er.. . . .
