Buenos Aires, February 7, 2013
President Cristina Kirchner announced on national TV, in a recorded message that sends to Congress a memorandum of understanding with Iran, as part of the case for the AMIA bombing in 1994.
“We have taken a very important step in unlocking a case that was totally immobilized and no possibility of Argentina Justice to question who has accused as alleged participants in the attack,” the president said from her office.
“I sincerely hope that many believed that we would not be able to reach an understanding for these people to testify before the Argentine judge in the case, but this can unlock it to get to know the truth,” she added.
“It is not just to make a trial, but to know the truth to do justice. For that reason this understanding,” Cristina said.
She indicated that “six Argentine federal judges have gone to twelve countries to interrogation”. “There is no waiver of sovereignty,” she proclaimed. “Who wants to negotiate? With the only country that we can negotiate to get these things is Iran,” she said.
