Macri Promises to Help Clear Up Nisman’s Death

BUENOS AIRES – Argentine President Mauricio Macri on Sunday, the eve of the first anniversary of Alberto Nisman’s death, promised to help clarify his death and the attack on the Jewish AMIA mutual association that the prosecutor had been investigating for a decade and over which he had denounced former President Cristina Fernandez.

“President Macri’s government ... does not intend to interfere with the judiciary but it will favor measures ... that will help to clarify both incidents,” said the President’s Office in a statement.

Macri made his stance public after meeting with Nisman’s daughters Iara and Kala.

During the meeting, Macri said that he felt it was a “pending debt” to the Nisman family to acknowledge the work the prosecutor had done to investigate the bloody 1994 AMIA attack that killed 85 people and in which nobody has been punished.

As a result of his investigation, Nisman had called for the capture of former Iranian officials and accused Fernandez of trying to cover up their misdeeds.

Nisman was scheduled to appear before the Argentine Congress on Jan. 19, 2015, to provide details on his cover-up complaint, but he was found shot to death the day before in the bathroom of his Buenos Aires home.

After a year of work and the preparation of more than 9,000 pages of testimony and other background information, the judiciary has been unable to determine whether Nisman killed himself or was murdered, the latter possibility being the one favored by his family.

Macri ordered all information relating to Nisman from September 2012 onwards to be declassified and lifted the obligation for intelligence agents to keep secret anything they know about the case.
