New twist in probe into suspicious death of Argentinian prosecutor


There is a new development in the probe into the death of a prosecutor who was about to give testimony against the Argentinian President Cristina Fernandez.

It is reported the draft of an arrest warrant for the president has been found at the home of the prosecutor, Alberto Nisman.

He was investigating the 1994 bombing of a Jewish Centre in Buenos Aires.

According to reports, Nisman was about to accuse Fernandez of protecting Iranian officials from responsibility in the bombing.

The Argentine Cabinet Chief, Jorge Capitanich, was shown on television ripping up copies of newspaper articles that contained details about the latest reports.

Nisman was found dead from a gunshot wound on January the 19th, the day he was due to appear in Congress.

He was called to give evidence over accusations that Fernandez had conspired to derail his investigation.

Authorities say they believe 51-year-old Nisman committed suicide, but his death has been treated as suspicious.

The official results of the inquiry into his death have not yet been released.
