Argentine prosecutor killed to discredit me: President Kirchner

Argentine prosecutor killed to discredit me: President Kirchner
Alberto Nisman, lead prosecutor in the two-decade-old case, was found dead with a gunshot wound to the head in his home Sunday -- one day before he was to go before a congressional hearing to accuse Kirchner of shielding Iranian officials implicated in the attack which left 85 dead. Investigators have said Nisman appeared to have committed suicide, but have not ruled out homicide or an “induced suicide.” 

In a post on her Facebook page, Kirchner contended that Nisman was killed to immerse her government in scandal after he had been “used” to publicly accuse her of involvement in the cover-up. “I’m convinced that it was not suicide,” Kirchner said.

“Prosecutor Nisman’s charges were never in themselves the true operation against the government. They collapsed early on. Nisman did not know it and probably never knew it.

“The true operation against the government was the prosecutor’s death after accusing the president, her foreign minister, and the secretary-general of (her political faction) of covering up for the Iranians accused in the AMIA attack,” she said.
