Argentine Prosecutor Killed

Photos by Rodrigo Abd

Argentine President Cristina Fernandez said Thursday, January 22, 2015, she’s “convinced” prosecutor Alberto Nisman did not commit suicide as more questions arose in the death of the man who had accused the president of a cover-up in the nation’s worst terrorist attack.

In a letter published by the state news agency Telam, Fernandez said all the questions about Nisman’s death “have been converted into certainty. The suicide (I’m convinced) was not a suicide.”

Fernandez’ letter contrasts with the one she wrote Monday saying she believed Nisman took his life.

The 51-year-old Nisman was found slumped in the bathroom of his apartment Sunday night with a bullet wound in his head. He was lying next to a .22-caliber handgun and a bullet casing.

Four days, before Nisman gave a judge a 289-page report alleging Fernandez secretly reached a deal to prevent prosecution of former Iranian officials accused of involvement in the 1994 car bombing of Argentina’s largest Jewish center.
