President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner has warned about a “global political operation” that threatens “sovereign nations,” following an article published in Pagina12 newspaper that links the so called “vulture funds” with late AMIA special prosecutor Alberto Nisman, the DAIA Jewish organization, and the political opposition’s rejection of the Iran memorandum.

The article, published yesterday in Pagina12 and signed by former DAIA director Jorge Elbaun, reveals Nisman was acquainted with Paul Singer, the billionaire that owns NML. NML is the hedge fund that heads the holdout lawsuit against Argentina over its national debt.

According to Elbaun, Nisman met in 2013 with DAIA authorities to manifest his will to crush the Iran memorandum pact. In that meeting, Nisman allegedly told the Jewish community representatives that “if necessary, Paul Singer would be willing to help” tear down the agreement.

Elbaun also says Nisman was “friends” with Mark Dubowitz, head of the Foundation for Defense of Democracy, an NGO financed by Singer that questions Argentina’s stance in the “vulture fund” case.

Based on the article, CFK questioned local journalists that put pressure on AMIA and DAIA to oppose the Iran pact, and criticized the way Singer funds lobby groups disguised as NGOs that operate to influence international politics. She also recalled these NGO “hired Argentine politicians” to spread their views.

“We are in front of a global modus operandi that not only damages sovereign nations, interfering and coercing different branches of government, but also generates international political operations of several kinds,” she said in a Facebook post published today in her account.

“Everything has to do with geopolitics and international power. Sometimes this modus operandi has global effects, like banning the possibility of a peace agreement between the US and other powers with Iran over nuclear proliferation, and sometimes it prevents agreements that could contribute to finding the truth about the AMIA terrorist attack,” Ms Kirchner added.
