Natalia Gimena Fernández was requested as a witness at Alberto Nisman’s apartment the night he was found dead from a bullet wound to his head by Prefecture. “I am scared but there are many things that have upset me,” the 26-year-old told media as she revealed some irregularities during the security operation at the scene.

In an interview granted to the Clarín newspaper, Fernández said that the night that AMIA special prosecutor Alberto Nisman was found dead she was walking with a friend past through the Alicia Moreau de Justo Street in the Buenos City neighbourhood of Puerto Madero when a coast guard car intercepted them, requesting their ID cards and asking them their age, if they were drugged or if they had had alcohol drinks.

“When we were sitting at the stairs, they brought the stretcher and in that they took away the body (of Alberto Nisman). It was like 3.30 am. He was wrapped up in a black sack. They took him to the right but 15 minutes later they put him back again and took him to the left. ‘No silly, it is this way,’ they said laughing. And then, when they took him back in the apartment, I did not see where they took him out,” the witness explained as she also recalled having seen “dirty” sheets and cloths.

That night Natalia had just gone out from her job, she is a waitress at a Puerto Madero bar.

In the interview, she assured that no one explained what she was supposed to do or what she should pay attention to in order to not affect the investigating works. She asked to go to the bathroom and was allowed to go to one at Nisman’s.

“There were like 25 folders. They read every page, they made summaries, they wrote and made me sign,” Fernández said adding that investigators had some mate drinks and ordered croissants. “They touched everything. There were 50 people. Prosecutor (Viviana Fein) asked ‘should we stop here and resume tomorrow?’”

Fernández also said Viviana Fein, the prosecutor in charge of the investigation into the death of Alberto Nisman, showed her a bag with “five cartridge shells or something like that.”
