She’ll be wanting the Falklands back again to distract from this little problem

Argie President?Cristina Fernandez de?Kirchner has been charged with covering up an Iranian bombing of a Jewish centre.

Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de?Kirchner?has been formally?accused of shielding Iranian officials from prosecution over allegations of their involvement in a 1994 bombing at a Buenos Aires Jewish centre, prosecutors said.

The prosecution move advances the case against Kirchner that was being pursued by late prosecutor Alberto Nisman before he died mysteriously on the eve of congressional hearings on his accusations.

Prosecutor?Gerardo Pollicita was assigned the case that prosecutor Nisman was building before he was found dead on January 18 after being shot in the head. His death was initially labelled a suicide, but suspicion has fallen on Kirchner’s government.

In a 289-page report to a judge, Nisman had accused Kirchner, Foreign Minister Hector Timerman and others in her administration of allegedly brokering the cover up in exchange for oil from Iran.

Kirchner?has strongly denied the accusations, and Iran has repeatedly said it was not involved in the bombing, which killed 85 people and wounded 200. ?

Pollicita will present his finding to judge Daniel Rafecas, the federal magistrate assigned to the case who will ultimately decide whether to dismiss it or send it on to trial.

Even before Pollicita’s decision, amid rumors that it was coming, the administration was moving to both reject and minimise it.

Attorney General Alejandra Gils Garbo said the new team comprised?”prosecutors who have demonstrated their integrity and bravery on many?occasions.”

Speaking to reporters early on Friday, Presidential spokesman Anibal Fernandez said moving the case forward was a “clear maneuver to destabilise democracy” but that ultimately “it has no legal value. It does not matter”.

She will no doubt call this a Zionist plot pushed by the UK in an attempt to stop Argentina from re-claiming what is rightfully theirs…the Flaklands.

It’s the only distraction the mad Argie has.

Let’s see how fast she marches backwards on this issue.
