Argentina declassifies files on Jewish center bombing

Source: The Times of Israel

The Argentine government on Friday declassified its files on an unsolved 1994 bombing at a Buenos Aires Jewish center that is at the center of a new political firestorm.

In a decree published in the Official Bulletin, the government declassified “all documents in their entirety” from the probe into the bombing. It also declassified “any other new documents, reports or files that have not been part of the case and could be of interest in the investigation.”

The bombing at the Argentine Jewish Mutual Association (AMIA) killed 85 people and wounded 300, the deadliest such attack in the South American country’s history.

The prosecutor, Alberto Nisman, had accused President Cristina Kirchner of shielding high-ranking Iranian officials from being implicated in the bombing in exchange for oil and trade benefits from Tehran. A judge dismissed the obstruction case against Kirchner last month.

Nisman had accused Iran of ordering the bombing via Lebanese militant group Hezbollah. He alleged that Kirchner’s government struck a deal with Iranian officials including former president Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani to have Interpol wanted notices for them annulled.

The Iranian and Argentine governments both deny the accusations. Interpol’s director at the time, Ronald Noble, says no such request was made.
