(ANTIMEDIA) BUENOS AIRES – In a case that has gripped the South American nation of Argentina, the mysterious death of prosecutor Alberto Nisman may not have been so mysterious after all. A 26-page arrest warrant for Argentine President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner has been found in the trash of the deceased prosecutor’s apartment.
The warrant was drafted accusing the President of covering up Iranian involvement in the 1994 bombing on a Jewish center in Buenos Aires. Argentina’s foreign minister Héctor Timerman was also listed on the document to be arrested.
Nisman was found dead in his apartment on January 18th of this year with a bullet in his head. He was scheduled to speak before Congress the following day to outline the details of his accusations directed at both the president and foreign minister.
Mrs. Kirchner and Mr. Timerman both deny that they were involved in Nisman’s accusation that they attempted to secure a deal in private to have international arrest warrants lifted for the Iranian officials wanted in connection to the bombing.
The prosecutor investigating Mr. Nisman’s death, Viviana Fein confirmed on Tuesday morning that Mr. Nisman had indeed composed the warrant which called for the arrest of the president. Fein had denied the existence of such a draft on Monday.
85 people were killed and hundreds more were injured in a an attack on the Asociación Mutual Israelita Argentina on July, 18, 1994. The AMIA bombing as it is commonly called was the deadliest bombing in Argentina’s history.
