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.

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.

France/USA/Israel: Israel to deport French-US professor arrested at West Bank protest

September 16, 2018

Without informing attorney, Frank Romano sent to immigration authorities, after allegedly blocking demolition of Bedouin village

An American-French law professor arrested by Israel while protesting against the demolition of a Palestinian village in the West Bank is to be deported, his lawyer said Sunday.

US-born Frank Romano, who teaches law at the Paris Nanterre University, was detained on Friday while taking part in a demonstration at the Bedouin village of Khan al-Ahmar, east of Jerusalem.

“There is an administrative decision to deport him,” lawyer Gaby Lansky told reporters.

“Like thieves in the night, instead of bringing Frank Romano to a hearing to free him from jail, which I requested and which was set for 4 p.m. in Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court, without notifying me or the court, at 2 p.m., police transferred him to immigration for deportation,” Lansky wrote on Twitter.

A spokeswoman for the Israeli Interior Ministry could not immediately confirm such a decision.

The village of roughly 200 people in the West Bank will be demolished, after an Israeli court paved the way for its razing.

Anti-demolition activists said Romano was arrested along with two Palestinian protesters when they tried to block bulldozers sent in by Israeli authorities to seal off an access road to the village. The activists said that Romano stood in front of a bulldozer that was clearing barriers that had been set up to slow demolition.

France/Israel: « Depuis un an, le temps s’est figé »

le 22 août, 2018

Le 23 août 2017, trois jours après avoir obtenu son diplôme d’avocat, Salah Hamouri, un Franco-Palestinien de 32 ans 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. En cette triste date d’anniversaire, nous avons joint son épouse Elsa Lefort, une Française qui vit en région parisienne. 

Cela fait un an jour pour jour que votre mari est emprisonné en Israël. Comment vous sentez-vous ?

Je me sens comme quelqu’un qui n’a pas vu son mari depuis plus d’un an. Comme quelqu’un qui ne sait pas quand elle va pouvoir le revoir. En ce jour anniversaire, cela n’est pas évident de se pencher sur ses sentiments quand on lutte quotidiennement pour qu’ils ne nous débordent pas. Un an dans une famille lambda, ça file à toute vitesse. Pour nous, depuis un an, c’est comme si le temps s’était figé.
