AMIA, DAIA condemn Argentina-Iran deal as 'step backwards'

Jewish groups AMIA and DAIA have reiterated their opposition to an agreement between Iran and Argentina over the investigation into the 1994 AMIA bombing, marking one year since the accord was signed.

"On the first anniversary of the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding between Argentina and Iran, the AMIA and DAIA reiterate their rejection due to the belief that it implies a step backwards on the path towards seeking truth and justice for the victims," the organisations explained in a joint-press statement.

In a communiqué signed by both AMIA head Leonardo Jmelnitzky, and DAIA counterpart Julio Schlosser, the groups signalled that "the only offer of cooperation that can be accepted from Iran is that those accused come to the country to give evidence, protected by law and by all guarantees of due process that the National Constitution and the law provides."

"The course of time has showed that the Irani government - also a Holocaust-denier - has not demonstrated any desire to move forward in spite of the requirements that in that sense were formulated by Argentina," the statement fires.

"In our role as victims of the AMIA attack, we will continue exercising all viable judicial options in our country and, when applicable, in the international courts so that this attack does not go unpunished."
