Ar­gen­tinian pros­e­cu­tor ‘was mur­dered’

The Guardian Weekly - - World Roundup -

An Ar­gen­tinian pros­e­cu­tor was mur­dered four days after he ac­cused the then pres­i­dent Cristina Fernán­dez de Kirch­ner of cov­er­ing up the role of Ira­nian of­fi­cials in con­nec­tion with the coun­try’s dead­li­est ter­ror at­tack, a bor­der po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tion has found.

The re­port, ob­tained by the As­so­ci­ated Press, con­tra­dicts ear­lier of­fi­cial find­ings that Al­berto Nis­man likely killed him­self. Nis­man, 51, was found dead on 18 Jan­uary 2015, with a bul­let in his right tem­ple. A .22 cal­i­bre pis­tol was found next to him.

The pros­e­cu­tor had led the probe into a 1994 bomb­ing of a Jewish com­mu­nity cen­tre, which killed 85 peo­ple.
