Once Again, Argentine Legal Authorities Dismiss Fraudulent Nisman Charges Against President Fernández

April 21, 2015 (EIRNS)—For the third time, Argentine legal authorities have tossed out the complaint made by the late federal prosecutor Alberto Nisman in mid-January which charged that President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner and her Foreign Minister, Hector Timerman, had colluded with Iran to cover up the latter’s alleged role in the 1994 bombing of the AMIA Jewish community center in Buenos Aires.

"No crime was committed," said Javier De Luca, the federal prosecutor who was mandated to rule on whether the case would be heard in the higher Federal Criminal Chamber. Two lower court judges had already tossed out Nisman’s case, citing its many contradictions and lack of concrete evidence. In his 27-page ruling issued April 20, De Luca upheld those lower court rulings, and said that "for as much as [Nisman’s] hypotheses are reviewed again and again, no crime can be found either to investigate or prove."

It was clear from the outset that the sole purpose of Nisman’s bogus accusations was to destabilize and possibly overthrow Fernández, who has firmly embraced the BRICS global development paradigm. Nisman was a known tool of foreign intelligence services, who spent a great deal of time at the U.S. Embassy seeking approval for his actions. His suspicious death on Jan. 19 ratcheted up the destabilization, with London and Wall Street-linked opposition figures charging that Fernández had Nisman killed.

In early February, President Fernández flanked the enemy operation with a high-profile and very successful trip to China. Now, she is in Moscow, to begin a two-day state visit which will culminate with her meeting with President Vladimir Putin on April 23. Accompanied by most of her cabinet, she is expected to sign an array of bilateral agreements in the areas of nuclear energy, infrastructure, trade, and economic cooperation, among others, with heavy emphasis on scientific and technological cooperation.
