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.

France/Israel: Meet the French-Palestinian lawyer held by Israel for a year without charge

November 1, 2018

Following his release, Salah Hamouri speaks with MEE about his situation and Palestinians’ broader struggle for freedom

For more than four hundred days, Salah Hamouri languished in prison, deprived of his freedom and family, and uncertain when he would ever be let out.

On 30 September, the Franco-Palestinian lawyer was released from Israeli custody after spending 13 months in administrative detention – an Israeli policy largely used against Palestinians to hold them without charges or trial for periods of up to six months, renewable indefinitely.

Hamouri had already been imprisoned by Israel between 2005 and 2011 after being accused of being involved in a Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-led (PFLP) assassination plot targeting right-wing Rabbi Ovadia Yousef – accusations the young man, the son of a Palestinian father from Jerusalem and a French mother, has repeatedly rejected.

In total, more than eight years of 33-year-old Hamouri’s life have gone up in smoke.

Hamouri’s wife, Elsa Lefort – who herself was banned from entering Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories in 2016 when she was six months pregnant – slammed Israel’s “relentlessness” vis-a-vis her husband in an interview with Middle East Eye in August (available only in French).

Hamouri’s case has led to intense mobilisation by pro-Palestine activists in France, who have called on the French government to intercede on his behalf.

Speaking with MEE after his release, Hamouri discussed his detention, the weakness of French diplomacy vis-a-vis Israel, and his determination to remain in Palestine despite Israeli pressure.

France/Israel: 24h avant la fin de sa peine, personne ne sait si Salah Hamouri, emprisonné en Israël, va être libéré

le 29 septembre, 2018

A 24h de la fin de sa peine, personne ne sait si Salah Hamouri, avocat franco-palestinien de 33 ans détenu arbitrairement en Israël depuis le 23 août 2017, sera libéré. “Nous avons pris contact plusieurs fois avec la diplomatie française. A la veille de sa sortie, elle n’est toujours pas en mesure de nous garantir que Salah sortira de prison ce dimanche (NDLR : 30 septembre)”, regrette son épouse Elsa Lefort. 

Le 23 août 2017, trois jours après avoir obtenu son diplôme d’avocat, Salah Hamouri était arrêté par l’armée israélienne à son domicile de Jérusalem puis placé arbitrairement “sans procès et sans charge” en détention administrative pour six mois, une durée renouvelable indéfiniment comme le prévoit la loi israélienne.

Une peine qui a été reconduite plusieurs fois depuis. La dernière devrait donc s’achever ce dimanche 30 septembre.

“Mais avec l’arbitraire israélien, tout est possible”, lâche dépitée Elsa Lefort. “La décision de maintenir mon mari en prison est politique puisque ce n’est pas la justice qui décide mais Lieberman (NDLR : le ministre israélien de la Défense connu pour son racisme anti-arabe) qui signe l’ordre de détention administrative”, rappelle-t-elle.

Ce n’est pas la première fois que Salah Hamouri est emprisonné en Israël.

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.
