MoU: Opposition paged to work on 'alternatives' to probe AMIA attack
The head of state summoned opposition MPs and famlies of the victims of the AMIA bombing that rejected the Kirchnerism-fueled Memorandum of Understanding signed with Iran to probe the 1994 attack, to work on an “alternative project” that, “within the margins of international law and the due process,” allows the investigation to move forward. Still, CFK warned as she addressed the Legislative Assembly: “Without the inquiry (of the impeached) there is not an inch of possibility that the process moves forward.”
“If it is justice that we demand, there is a cover up case that has not moved not even an inch with none of the defendants, who are in the country, summoned to testify,” MS. Kirhcner said in reference to a judicial investigation that has remained in a standstill, seeking to probe cover-up operations and corruption in the AMIA case.
On July 18 1994, a car bomb exploded at the entrance of the AMIA Jewish community center in Buenso Aires City killing 85 people and injuring thousands.
In 2013, the governments of Argentina and the Islamic Republic of Iran agreed on a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to jointly shed light on the tragic events. The MoU creates a Truth Commission shaped up by independent legal experts and readies the visit by Argentine judicial officials to Tehran to interrogate the Iranian citizens allegedly involved in the deadly attack.
