GUATEMALA CITY – Argentine Foreign Minister Hector Timerman said that accusations of a cover-up leveled by deceased Prosecutor Nisman against President Cristina Fernandez are all “made up,” after an Argentine court ratified dismissal of the case.
Timerman spoke on Thursday during a visit to Guatemala.
The case against Fernandez filed by Nisman alleged her involvement in a cover-up of links between Iran and terrorists responsible for a 1994 attack on the Argentine Israelite Mutual Association building which left 85 dead.
Nisman was found dead in his home, under circumstances still not clear, four days after filing the case and on the eve of an appearance before Congress to outline his case, which also implicated Timerman in the cover-up.
“There is nothing of the kind denounced by Nisman, all that is said is totally false. All the dialogues attributed to me do not exist; the meetings that they say happened, never happened,” said Timerman.
He insisted that the Argentine government wants to resolve the bombing case, the country’s worst terrorist attack.
