Argentina/Israel/Iran: Marking Fourth Anniversary of Alberto Nisman’s Murder, Israel Unveils Memorial to Argentine Prosecutor Who Sought Justice for Iran-Linked Bombing of Buenos Aires Jewish Center

January 18, 2019

Israeli and Jewish leaders on Friday marked the fourth anniversary of Argentine federal prosecutor Alberto Nisman’s murder by unveiling a memorial plaque in his honor at the Ben Shemen forest in central Israel.

Nisman’s body was discovered in the early morning of Jan. 19, 2015 — hours before he was due to unveil a complaint against the former government of President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner over its alleged collusion with Iran in effectively exonerating the Islamic Republic of responsibility for the 1994 bombing of the AMIA Jewish center in Buenos Aires, in which 85 people were murdered and more than 300 wounded.

Nisman had been investigating the AMIA atrocity since 2005, with his efforts resulting in the global law enforcement agency Interpol issuing six “red notices”  in 2007 for the Iranian and Lebanese Hezbollah operatives believed to have planned the attack.

Kirchner’s government falsely maintained that Nisman’s assassination was a suicide until an independent police investigation in May 2017 established beyond doubt that the prosecutor had been murdered. More recent efforts within Argentina to bring Kirchner — who is now a senator — to trial over both the alleged AMIA cover-up with Iran and Nisman’s murder have so far failed.

Argentina/Israel/Iran: Jewish National Fund and KKL to Unveil Special Monument in Memory of Alberto Nisman

January 13, 2019

The KKL-JNF (Keren Kayemet L’Israel-Jewish National Fund) will inaugurate a monument in memory of Alberto Nisman, the Special Prosecutor murdered while investigating the 1994 car bombing of the Buenos Aires Jewish Center by Hezbollah terrorists.

Among those attending the ceremony will be: Knesset Chairman, MK Yuli Edelstein, Argentinean Ambassador to Israel, H.E. Mr. Mariano Caucino, KKL-JNF World Chairman, Mr. Daniel Atar, KKL-JNF Vice Chairman, Mr. Hernán Felman, and AMIA President, Mr. Agustin Igdal Zbar

On the fourth anniversary of his tragic death, Keren Kayemet L’Israel-Jewish National Fund (KKL-JNF; http://www.kkl-jnf.org/) will unveil the monument built in Alberto Nisman’s honor in a formal ceremony with officials from both Israel and Argentina.

The ceremony will take place on Friday, January 18th, 2019, at 10:00 at the Israel-Argentina Friendship Forest, Ben Shemen Forest (http://www.kkl-jnf.org/tourism-and-recreation/forests-and-parks/ben-shemen-forest.aspx).

Alberto Nisman was the leading prosecutor in charge of the investigation into the terrorist attack on the AMIA (Asociación Mutual Israelita Argentina) Jewish community center in Buenos Aires in 1994 which claimed the lives of 85 people,  and he accused the Argentinian authorities of having covered up Iran’s involvement in it.

In 2015, just hours before he was due to testify before the Argentinian Congress, he was found dead at his home. Although the mystery of his death has never been solved, the presumption is that he was shot in the head in the course of a murderous assault that was disguised to look like suicide.

“He felt a personal, not just a professional responsibility to defend the Jewish People,” said Judge Sandra Arroyo Salgado, Nisman’s former partner. “He gave his life in the quest for justice for the victims of terrorism.”

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.
