Report: Dead prosecutor was a ‘soldier’ of ex-Argentine spy boss

The Argentine prosecutor found dead last month was the unwitting “soldier” of former counterintelligence chief Antonio Stiusso, who was seeking revenge for his firing, President Cristina Fernandez’s chief of staff said. Anibal Fernandez, who is not related to the president, told Reuters late on Thursday that it was clear years ago that Stiusso called the

shots in his relationship with prosecutor Alberto Nisman, who had been investigating the deadly 1994 bombing of a Jewish community center. “I am convinced Nisman did not write the charges,” Fernandez said in an interview in his wood-paneled office inside the Casa Rosada, the seat of government, late on Thursday. “In his role as a soldier in Stiusso’s army, he ended up signing them.”
