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.. . . .
