MAI TARE CA LA NOI. Procurul argentinian gasit mort, tocmai scrisese un mandat de arestare pentru Presedinta Argentinei
Procurorul Alberto Nisman, a carui moarte neelucidata a zguduit Argentina, a vrut sa ceara arestarea presedintei Cristina Kirchner pentru ingradirea justitiei, a declarat marti procuroarea Viviana Fein, citata de AFP.
Dupa ce a dezmintit luni informatia, procuroarea a anuntat descoperirea intr-un cos de gunoi a unei ciorne de 26 de pagini in acest sens, datata 14 iunie 2014, in timpul perchezitiilor in apartamentul lui Alberto Nisman, unde acesta a murit in 18 ianuarie.
Cu patru zile mai devreme, Alberto Nisman, insarcinat cu ancheta atentatului antisemit de la AMIA (85 de morti in 1994), a acuzat-o pe Kirchner ca a ingradit justitia favorizand nepedepsirea suspectilor iranieni.
In dosarul de acuzare, Nisman nu a inclus in cele din urma documentul gasit in cosul de gunoi, potrivit lui Fein, insarcinata cu anchetarea acestei "morti suspecte".
Informatia privind existenta acestui document a fost initial publicata duminica de cotidianul Clarin, dezmintita luni de procurorul Fein si de seful guvernului Jorge Capitanich, care a rupt articolul din Clarin in fata camerelor de televiziune.
Daca Nisman ar fi cerut arestarea presedintelui, cererea sa ar fi trebuit validata de un judecator inainte de a urma o lunga si anevoioasa procedura judiciara.
In fine, cererea ar fi trebuit aprobata de parlament cu o majoritate de doua treimi, in conditiile in care coalitia lui Kirchner detine majoritatea in cele doua camere. Cu alte cuvinte, cererea era sortita esecului.
Primele elemente ale autopsiei comunicata pana acum de procuroare duc cu gandul la o sinucidere dar majoritatea argentinienilor se intreaba de ce s-ar sinucide un magistrat care ar fi trebuit sa prezinte a doua zi in fata congresului acuzatiile fata de Kirchner si alti inalti functionari.
Alberto Nisman, 51 de ani, divortat si tata a doua fete, a for inmormantat joi in apropiere de Buenos Aires.
BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - An Argentine prosecutor found dead in mysterious circumstances last month had drafted a request that President Cristina Fernandez be arrested for conspiring to derail his probe into the deadly bombing of a Jewish center, the investigator into his death said on Tuesday.
The papers were found in the trash at Alberto Nisman's apartment while his property was being scoured for clues over whether the father-of-two committed suicide or was murdered.
He was found in a pool of blood with a single bullet to the head on Jan. 18.
"The drafts are in the file," Viviana Fein, the lead investigator into Nisman's death, told a local radio station.
The request for Fernandez's arrest, which the prominent pro-opposition daily newspaper Clarin said Nisman drafted in June, was not included in his final 350-page submission to the judiciary delivered days before his death. Instead Nisman called for Fernandez to face questions in court.
On Monday, Fein's office had denied the existence of the document containing the arrest request and the government denounced a Clarin story about it as "garbage".
Cabinet Chief Jorge Capitanich even dramatically tore up a copy of the paper in his daily news briefing. But on Tuesday, Fein backtracked, saying there had been a misunderstanding between her and her office, and the documents did exist.
"They are properly incorporated into the case file, nothing is missing," Fein said of the papers on Tuesday.
Nisman spent almost a decade building up a case that Iran was behind the 1994 attack on the Argentine Israelite Mutual Association (AMIA) that killed 85 people. Iran's government has repeatedly denied the allegation.
Nisman had been due the day after his death to answer questions in Congress about his allegations that Fernandez sought to cover up Iran's involvement in return for Iranian oil. Fernandez has called the claim "absurd".
Argentine judges are proving reluctant to take on a case some are calling a "judicial hot potato". Two judges turned down hearing the case on Monday, including one who is already presiding over separate charges of attempts to derail the investigation into the 1994 bombing.
The other cover-up charges involve ex-President Carlos Menem, who ruled the South American country from 1989 to 1999.
Fernandez, who had come under fierce criticism for her handling of Nisman's death, is currently on a trip to China.
