Case against president moves


The prosecutor who inherited a high-profile case against Argentine President Cristina Fernandez on Friday reaffirmed the accusation­s, formally renewing the investigat­ion into whether the president helped Iranian officials cover up their alleged role in the 1994 bombing of a Jewish community centre. Prosecutor Gerardo Pollicita’s decision sets the stage for a close examinatio­n of the investigat­ion that prosecutor Alberto Nisman was building before he was found dead Jan. 18. The next day, Nisman was scheduled to elaborate his accusation­s to Congress.
