Almost five years later, the death of Alberto Nisman, the prosecutor who led the investigation into Argentina’s deadliest terrorist attack, still perplexes and fascinates many in this South American country.
Much as they did on Jan. 18, 2015, when the prosecutor’s lifeless body was found in mysterious circumstances that launched a debate over whether he was murdered or took his own life, Argentines spent Jan. 1, 2020 glued to their screens, this time watching the Netflix series: “Nisman: The Prosecutor, the President and the Spy.”
Nisman had accused then-President Cristina Fernández, her Foreign Minister Héctor Timerman, a lawmaker, and four others of conspiring to lift Interpol’s red alerts against a handful of prominent Iranians accused of involvement the 1994 bombing of Argentina’s AMIA Jewish center, an attack that left 85 people dead.
According to the prosecutor, Fernández’s government may have negotiated impunity for the suspects with Tehran in exchange for resuming trade relations.
“Nisman: The Prosecutor, the President and the Spy” is available now on Netflix.
