No, not on the investigation of Nisman‘s murder, but on the civil lawsuit Nisman brought against her:
Cristina Criticizes Attempts To Reopen Nisman’s Case Against Her. Former President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner took to Twitter to criticize further attempts to reopen a case that Prosecutor Alberto Nisman opened against her.
In a barrage of Tweets today, former President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner criticized yet another attempt to reopen a case investigating whether she covered up the role Iran could have allegedly played in the deadly 1994 AMIA bombing. The bid to reopen the case has already been rejected, but Cristina took to Twitter nonetheless to blame the Macri administration for instigating it.
Why, pray tell?
On January 18th 2015, Nisman was found dead in his apartment with a single gunshot to the head. It’s still unknown whether this was a suicide or homicide. He was set to appear before Congress to justify calling Cristina to the stand mere hours after he was killed.
Federal Judge Daniel Rafecas dismissed the case against Cristina in 2015. Then, in March, Prosecutor Gerardo Pollicita requested reopening the case, but according to Rafecas, the case was already “closed and archived” and could not be opened again. Once the judiciary returns from recess next week, La Nación sources revealed days ago that a double strategy will be implemented. First, the DAIA (Delegación de Asociaciones Israelitas Argentinas) will ask for Judge Rafecas to de-archive the case. Second, Federal Chamber Prosecutor Germán Moldes will try to get the ruling that closed the investigation annulled.
We’ll see how this all turns out.
