    Argentine Prosecutor Found Dead Hours Before Due to Give Court Testimony

    Buenos Aires: An Argentine prosecutor was found dead just hours before he had been due to give what was expected to be damning testimony against President Cristina Kirchner, in what appears to have been a suicide, officials said on Monday.

    Investigators should look at whether Mr Nisman was under pressure from anybody, and who the gun belonged to, local media reports quoted Ms Fein as saying. The weapon was not Mr Nisman's, the reports said.

    Why would he commit suicide just before such and important court case? Seems there is a lot of division about whether it's truly a suicide. While some are hasty to rule it a suicide, others claim it was an assassination. Several prominent Argentinian figures had been implicated by Alberto Nisman.

    Argentine Protesters Demand Thorough Investigation

    But Ms Fein said she was investigating whether Mr Nisman may have killed himself after receiving threats.

    "We could talk of a suicide, the body was neither beaten nor mistreated, but I don't rule out instigation," she said.

    "We are calling his death 'suspicious'," she added.

    Alberto Nisman's Warning About Iran

    Nisman spent the past decade seeking justice for the victims of the 1994 terrorist bombing of a Buenos Aires Jewish community center, which killed 85 people and wounded many more. Nisman compiled a massive case, accusing Iran and its Lebanese terrorist affiliate, Hezbollah, of the attack. He indicted a member of Hezbollah and a number of former high-ranking Iranians officials. And he found himself increasingly at cross-purposes with the machinations of Argentina’s President Cristina Kirchner.

    Nisman's Service Door Was Open, Secret Entrance Found

    A locksmith called to the flat of Alberto Nisman, the Argentine prosecutor who had accused both the president and the Iranians of covering up the country's worst terrorist attack, has said that a door to his apartment was left open.

    The third door linked Mr Nisman's flat to a neighbouring apartment, which was rented by a foreign national - not thought to be Iranian. Clarin said that in the narrow corridor between the two doors, blocked by an air conditioning unit, police had found a fingerprint and a footprint.

    Ms Fein, the investigator, said that there were no traces of gunpowder on his right hand - although that was inconclusive. And Mr Nisman's friends have all been quick to say that he was excited by the opportunity to present his case - the fruit of over a decade of investigation.

    Nisman Called 86th Victim of AMIA Bombing

    “The president and her foreign minister took the criminal decision to fabricate Iran’s innocence to sate Argentina’s commercial, political and geopolitical interests,” Nisman told reporters last week. (A number of Argentine officials deny the claims.) Nisman also delivered another noteworthy quote last week: "I might get out of this dead," he told a journalist.

    Investigators said there were three possible ways to enter the apartment:


    • Main door: operated by an electronic code and found locked
    • Service door: according to the locksmith, this was closed but unlocked. The key was in the lock inside the apartment
    • Air conditioning tunnel: narrow passageway housing air conditioning units linking Mr Nisman's apartment to that of a neighbour


    According to the investigators, there were recent footprints and a fingerprint inside the air conditioning passageway. They are being tested.

    Viviana Fein had previously said there were no traces of a burglary or signs of any of the doors being forced open.

    Alberto Nisman's death 'responsibility of pro-Kirchner intelligence operatives', claims ex-official

    A cell of Argentinian presidential loyalists in the country's intelligence service organised the killing of a prosecutor investigating Iran's role in the bombing of Jewish centre, according to a former senior official in the agency.

    The explosive claim came as Mrs Kirchner called on the country's congress to dissolve the intelligence services in the wake of the death on January 18 of Alberto Nisman.

    This is sounding more and more suspicious. Nisman borrowed a gun because he didn't trust LE to protect him. With good reason, maybe.

    Mr Nisman's security chief has been suspended and is under investigation along with two other members of his guard.

    Ruben Benitez had co-ordinated [sic] a security team of 10 officers to protect Mr Nisman.

    Police say the team broke with protocol by remaining out of contact with Mr Nisman for several hours on the day of his death and failing to report to their superiors.

    Argentine Prosecutor Found Dead Hours Before Due to Give Court Testimony

    It looks extremely suspicious as arrest warrant was drafted. However judge dismissed the case against president Fernandez de Kirschner which seems to exonerate her.

    BREAKING: Draft of Arrest Warrant for Argentine President Found at Dead Prosecutor’s Home.

    An Argentinian judge has refused to pursue allegations that president Cristina Fernández de Kirchner conspired with Iran to cover up the nation’s deadliest terrorist attack – raising the prospect of the case dying along with the prosecutor who presented it.

    There is no shortage of corruption in Argentina.

    About a year ago I was in Buenos Aires and Cristina was finally back in town from holiday, to give a major speech. (She had been absent for months, even though the country was in economic crisis.) There were hundreds (literally) of buses lining the downtown streets. They had brought rural folks from outside the city to a cheering rally for Cristina. Our hosts told us that these people were generally unemployed and were paid to come to the city, provided food, etc. The crowds were very large and they brought the city to a standstill. It was an incredible sight to see.
    Any man's death diminishes me,
    Because I am involved in mankind,
    Therefore, send not to know, for whom the bell tolls;
    It tolls for thee.

    Giving money and food to the poor is a nice gesture, but using money and food to entice the poor and hungry to appear as supporters ..... isn't that kind of like tying a steak around your neck to get the dog to play with you?


    I'm really not surprised that more continues to be revealed about the whole ordeal. I think someone had Nisman assassinated because of what he was about to expose in court. And, I think whoever's behind it will eventually realize that assassinating Nisman will only lead to their downfall because now Argentina is an open stage playing before the entire world. Everything will fall into place piece by piece, and there will be no hiding it since all eyes are on Argentina. I don't care how many bigwigs are involved: they are going to start tumbling like dominoes. JMO
