Ricardo Sáenz, the chief prosecutor at the Argentina federal judicial chamber, said in a writ that Nisman did not commit suicide – the first time that an official authority has clearly identified the death as a possible murder case.
The inquiry had been stalled for more than a year as investigators could not determine a cause of death.
According to Infobae’s Martín Angulo, the case has more chances of following the “murder” theory Sáenz espouses if it is sent to the Federal Jurisdiction, as several of his colleagues who also organized and promoted February 18th 2015 march in Nisman’s honor work there, thus having a higher influence on its outcome.
It’s worth clarifying this case has nothing to do with Nisman’s accusation against Cristina and co., which was dismissed by Federal Judge Daniel Rafecas last year. Here, Sáenz is trying to establish the reasons that led to Nisman’s death, a completely different case that, of course, goes hand in hand with the first one that kicked off one of the largest clusterfucks in Argentine history.
As Drudge says, developing.
