AMIA rejects Argentina-Iran deal
The head of the AMIA, Guillermo Borger, confirmed its rejection towards the deal signed between Argentina and Iran to create an independent international “truth commission” in the investigation of the 1994 AMIA terrorist attack.
"We are sure that the Government will approve this decision, because we see their good will to solve the attack, and the AMIA is making everything it can to get to the truth," Borger assured.
"Creating a new committee doesn't count with our approval because of the situation the case is now, it is not necessary to create it when there are pending testimonies and we count with the will of the Argentine judiciary to go to Iran," he continued.
Foreign Minister Héctor Timerman met on Tuesday with the heads of AMIA, DAIA and victims' families to explain the agreement signed with Iran to create the "truth commission," which allows Argentine Judges to question Iran's suspects in Tehran.
Although, at first it seemed that they had agreed with what the minister explained to them, they later showed their concern to the authorities.
