The prosecutor in charge of the investigation into the death of Alberto Nisman has deemed his death a “homicide” and seeks to bring the case to a federal court.

On Anniversary of Alberto Nisman’s Death, No Answers and Bigger Iran Threat

On January 18, 2015, Argentine prosecutor Alberto Nisman was found dead, lying in a pool of blood with a gunshot wound to his head. He was to testify the next day that the nation’s president and foreign minister had brokered a deal with the government of Iran to protect the masterminds of the worst terrorist attack in the Western Hemisphere before September 11, 2001. One year later, the newly elected Argentine government – which may attribute its victory largely to the Argentine people’s revulsion at the leftist incumbents’ mismanagement of the Nisman case – have few answers, but vow justice in a case some in the previous administration appeared to hope was a suicide.
