„The appeals court in Buenos Aires has cleared the path to a criminal probe into former Argentine President Cristina Kirchner’s motives in cooperating with Iran on the investigation of the deadly 1994 bombing of the AMIA Jewish center. In a 249-page ruling handed down Thursday, three judges wrote that the evidence presented ‚does not permit a justified dismissal of possible illicit actions‘ by Kirchner in connection with a deal between her and her administration with Iranian officials. Kirchner, who already is on trial over corruption charges, allegedly covered up evidence from the bombing in exchange for Iranian oil.
The allegations were made by prosecutor Alberto Nisman, who died mysteriously in January 2015, and had been dismissed by a lower court. Nisman accused Kirchner of trying to derail the investigation into the bombing of the AMIA Jewish community center, which killed 85 and injured 300. Argentine courts have accused Iran of orchestrating the attack, though Iran has denied any involvement.“ (Bericht auf JTA: „Argentine court rules ex-president may have covered up Iranian bombing of Jewish center“)
