Last month, Argentine prosecutor Alberto Nisman, 51, made accusations that top Argentine officials, including President Fernandez de Kirchner, had conspired with Iran to cover up responsibility for a 1994 bombing of a Jewish center.
Nisman claimed the bombing was part of a deal that would supply Iranian oil to Argentina.
Mr. Nisman’s body was discovered on January 18th – the day before he was to testify before lawmakers about those accusations. His door on the 13th floor had been locked from the inside, and a gun with a spent cartridge was found on the floor near his body. There was no suicide note.
Mr. Nisman, had drafted a warrant for the arrest of President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, accusing her of trying to shield Iranian officials from responsibility in the 1994 bombing of a Jewish center, the lead investigator into his death said on Tuesday.
