Argentine President and Foreign Minister Charged Over Cover-Up of Iran’s Role in AMIA Atrocity

Gerardo Pollicita, the Argentine Federal Prosecutor appointed to examine the accusation that the Argentine government attempted to cover up Iran’s role in the 1994 bombing of the AMIA Jewish center in Buenos Aires, has announced that he will be pursuing the country’s top leadership over the charge.

President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner and Foreign Minister Héctor Timerman are the most prominent names in Pollicita’s complaint, described by the Buenos Aires Herald as giving “a green light” to the charges originally made by Special Prosecutor Alberto Nisman before he died last month in suspicious circumstances. As The Algemeiner reported earlier today, there is a growing conviction in both Argentina and Israel that Iran was also behind Nisman’s death, which the Argentine government is officially treating as a suicide.
