Argentina/Israel/Iran: Uno de los acusados en el caso que investiga la muerte de Alberto Nisman pidió su sobreseimiento

07/11/18

El fiscal Alberto Nisman

A tres años y nueve meses de la muerte del fiscal Alberto Nisman, uno de los policías que debía custodiarlo en las horas previas al deceso pidió ser sobreseído por prescripción, revelaron a Infobae fuentes judiciales. Se trata de Néstor Durán, integrante de la dupla de efectivos que debía cuidar al funcionario judicial el sábado 17 de enero de 2015 y el menos comprometido de los policías procesados en el expediente.

 

Fue, además, quien acompañó en el ascensor a Diego Lagomarsino, el técnico informático que está acusado de haber sido partícipe necesario en el supuesto homicidio del fiscal. Lagomarsino llevaba en su mochila una pistola Bersa calibre 22 que, según dijo, le había pedido el propio Nisman. Fue el arma que se activó para disparar el tiro en la sien que dio muerte al entonces titular de la UFI AMIA.

 

A diferencia de sus otros tres compañeros, Durán no está acusado del encubrimiento del crimen sino del incumplimiento de sus deberes como funcionario público. Ese delito tiene una pena máxima de dos años de prisión. Y, por eso, su defensa entendió que la acusación en su contra había quedado prescripta en enero de 2017, dos años después de la muerte del fiscal Nisman.

 

Sin embargo, el juez federal Julián Ercolini rechazó la petición de sobreseimiento por el paso del tiempo. Recordó que Durán fue funcionario público en la Policía Federal (en su rol de sargento) hasta diciembre de 2017 cuando Ercolini lo procesó y el Ministerio de Seguridad decidió desafectarlo. “Precisamente, la prescripción se interrumpe en casos de funcionarios públicos y por eso no correría esta solicitud”, resaltaron las fuentes a Infobae.

Argentina/Brazil/Paraguay: Advogada de megatraficantes brasileiros é assassinada no Paraguai

13/11/18

Laura Marcela Casuso foi atingida por disparos de pistola 9mm. Lista de clientes da vítima incluía Jarvis Pavão e Marcelo Piloto, criminosos com grande influência na área de fronteira

A advogada argentina Laura Marcela Casuso, de 54 anos, que defendia o narcotraficante brasileiro Jarvis Chimenes Pavão, foi assassinada a tiros, na noite desta segunda-feira, 12, em Pedro Juan Caballero, na fronteira do Paraguai com o Brasil. Conforme a polícia paraguaia, a morte está relacionada com a guerra entre facções brasileiras para o controle do tráfico na região.

Laura atuava também na defesa do traficante Marcelo Fernando Pinheiro Veiga, o ‘Marcelo Piloto’, ligado à facção carioca Comando Vermelho e preso no Paraguai desde dezembro de 2017.

A advogada foi atingida por oito disparos de pistola 9 mm quando saía de uma reunião, no centro da cidade, para atender a um telefonema. Ela foi emboscada quando se preparava para embarcar em seu SUV Range Rover, com placa brasileira do município paulista de Santana de Parnaíba.

Laura chegou a ser levada para um hospital, passou por uma cirurgia, mas não resistiu. Conforme o secretário de Segurança Pública de Pedro Juan Caballero, Teófilo Giménez, a suspeita é de que os assassinos sejam brasileiros. O crime aconteceu a 400 metros da linha de fronteira e os atiradores estavam a bordo de uma Toyota Hillux que teria sido furtada no Brasil.

Uma das hipóteses é de que a advogada tenha sido morta a mando de um de seus clientes.

Argentina/Iran/Israel: Argentine leader asks UN to remember bombings on Jewish sites

September 27, 2018

Mauricio Macri also urges Iran to cooperate in investigation of the 1994 AMIA Jewish center terror attack, which killed 85 and injured hundreds

Argentina’s president spoke against global terrorism and remembered the victims of the 1992 and 1994 attacks in Buenos Aires in his address to the United Nations General Assembly.

Mauricio Macri also called on Iran to cooperate in the investigation of the 1994 AMIA Jewish center bombing, which killed 85 and injured hundreds. The late Argentinian prosecutor Alberto Nisman established that Iran was responsible for organizing the bombing, which was carried out by a Hezbollah suicide bomber.

“We suffered two serious attacks in 1992 and 1994, which claimed the lives of 107 people and hundreds wounded,” Macri said Tuesday in his address to the international body. “Our country will not cease in its objective: to get all the people involved in the attacks to appear before Argentine courts, to be interrogated and eventually convicted.

Argentina/Iran/Israel: Analysis of 40,000 recordings about AMIA bombing wins online journalism award

September 17, 2018

La Nacion takes prize for probe into audio Alberto Nisman used in his allegations of Argentina-Iran cover-up in Buenos Aires attack

An Argentine news outlet’s analysis of secret recordings about the bombing of the 1994 AMIA Jewish center in Buenos Aires beat out The Wall Street Journal and others to win an international journalism award on Saturday.

La Nacion, a daily, won the international Online Journalism Award from the Online News Association for excellence in audio digital storytelling for medium and large newsrooms.

Its “Prosecutor Nisman Phone Interceptions Mapped in Playlists” was developed through its data journalism website La Nacion Data and also was picked over The Guardian, KPCC public radio in Southern California and the Texas Tribune.

La Nacion Data Argentina analyzed 40,354 audio recordings that included information on which special prosecutor Alberto Nisman based his allegations that the government of former President Cristina de Kirchner cooperated with Iran to cover up the Islamic Republic’s role in the July 18, 1994, bombing of the Jewish center that killed 85.

The project included a two-year crowdsourcing effort to listen to 40,354 phone interceptions of the 986 hours of audio used by Nisman as the main evidence in his investigation; creation of a database with the 200 most important and relevant audios; and publication of those recordings in an interactive visualization tool.

The analysis conducted by 120 volunteers uncovered several pieces of information that had not been previously disclosed.

Nisman was found dead on Jan. 18, 2015, hours before he was to present his allegations concerning the Argentina-Iran agreement about the AMIA bombing. His allegations named the government of Kirchner as part of the cover-up of Iran’s role.

Whether Nisman’s shooting in his apartment was murder or self-inflicted has yet to be determined. Even though there is not a judiciary sentence yet, the current investigation is based on the hypothesis that the death of Nisman was murder, not suicide.

Argentina/Iran/Israel: BEN-DAT: IRAN MUST BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR ARGENTINE BOMBING

July 26, 2018

Earlier this month, a federal judge in Argentina formally asked the government of Russia to arrest Ali Akbar Velayati, an Iranian diplomat who traveled to Moscow to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Velayati, a personal envoy of Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, travels the world these days to ensure that other governments hear the views of Iran’s ruling theocrat, particularly on the subject of the 2015 nuclear agreement.

Twenty-four years ago, Velayati was Iran’s foreign minister. Twenty-four years ago, on July 18, a car bomb destroyed the AMIA Asociación Mutual Israelita Argentina (Argentine Israelite Mutual Association) building in Buenos Aires. The blast killed 85 people and injured hundreds of others. Argentine investigators eventually tied the atrocity to the government of Iran.

Argentinian prosecutor Alberto Nisman, who investigated the bombing, was able to prove that the authorization for the attack was made during a meeting of Iran’s National Security Council on August 14, 1993. Nisman compiled an unassailable dossier of evidence that implicated several Iranian officials, including Velayati, in the horrible crime. Indeed, Velayati and seven other Iranian officials have been the subjects of international arrest warrants since 2006.

Nisman was eventually murdered for his fearless investigations. His killer, or killers, remain at large.

Argentina/Iran/Israel: Argentine Senators Discuss Removal of Ex-President Kirchner’s Legal Immunity Over AMIA Bombing, Alberto Nisman Killing

June 5, 2018

Argentine senators began discussions on Tuesday on the possible removal of former President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner’s immunity from prosecution — less than a week after a federal court in Buenos Aires ruled definitively that Alberto Nisman, the federal prosecutor who was investigating the 1994 terrorist bombing of the AMIA Jewish center in the Argentine capital, along with the Kirchner government’s alleged cover-up of Iran’s culpability, was assassinated in January 2015.

Nisman’s body was found in his Buenos Aires apartment hours before he was due to present a formal complaint to Argentina’s Congress that detailed the alleged role of Kirchner and her government colleagues in covering up Iran’s responsibility for the AMIA atrocity. Eighty-five people died and hundreds more were wounded when a truck packed with explosives rammed into the AMIA building in downtown Buenos Aires on July 18, 1994.

While government-appointed investigators initially tried to depict Nisman’s death as a suicide, in December 2017 federal judge Julian Ercolini issued the first ruling that Nisman had been murdered. In the same month, the federal judge investigating Nisman’s original complaint against the former Kirchner government, Claudio Bonadio, indicted the ex-president and several of her close colleagues on treason charges related to a secret pact that effectively exonerated the Tehran regime for the AMIA bombing. Bonadio also requested formally that the Argentine Senate — of which Kirchner is an elected member — remove her legal immunity.

Argentina/Iran/Israel: Argentine federal court confirms AMIA prosecutor was murdered

 

June 2, 2018

Judge rules Alberto Nisman was killed as ‘direct consequence’ of his accusations of cover-up in 1994 Jewish center bombing; instructs ‘speedy and serious’ investigation

An Argentine federal appeals court confirmed Friday that special prosecutor Alberto Nisman, found dead in 2015 while investigating a 1994 Jewish center bombing, was murdered.

The Federal Court of Buenos Aires said there was no doubt that Nisman’s death was a homicide rather than suicide, El Pais reported, and came as a “direct consequence” of his accusations that then-president Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner covered up Iran’s role in the attack on the Buenos Aires AMIA center that left 85 dead and hundreds wounded.

The court called on the judge overseeing the case to focus on the investigation of the homicide “with the speed and seriousness that such a grave matter imposes.”

The court thus confirmed a federal judge’s ruling in December that Nisman’s death “could not have been a suicide.”

Judge Julian Ercolini wrote in a 656-page ruling then that there was enough evidence to support foul play in the death of Nisman, who was discovered in his Buenos Aires apartment with a gunshot wound to the head, delivered at close range from a handgun found at his side.

Ercolini’s ruling also pointed to one suspect in the death: Diego Lagomarsino, an IT employee in Nisman’s office, who he said was a possible accessory to murder.

Nisman had previously accused the Iranian-backed Hezbollah terror group of carrying out the attack AMIA at the direction of Iran. He established how and when Iran commissioned the bombing and that Hezbollah recruited and dispatched the suicide-bomber, Ibrahim Berro, who drove the explosives-filled Renault Trafic van into the building on July 18, 1994.

The prosecutor later accused Kirchner and other officials of agreeing to ignore Iran’s involvement in exchange for commercial benefits for Argentina, in violation of the country’s penal code and the independence of the judiciary.
