Case against Argentine president moves forward

The prosecutor who inherited a high-profile case against Argentine President Cristina Fernandez is reaffirming the accusations. On Friday, Gerardo Pollicita formally re-opened the investigation into whether the president helped Iranian officials cover up their role in the 1994 bombing of a Jewish community center. Pollicita was assigned the case that prosecutor Alberto Nisman was building before he was found dead Jan. 18. In a 289-page report to a judge, Nisman accused Fernandez, Foreign Minister Hector Timerman and others in her administration of brokering the cover up in exchange for oil from Iran.
