Says assassination linked to 1992 Israeli embassy bombing
During a radio interview to be aired Sunday night, former Mossad chief Shabtai Shavit suggested Iran may have “directly or indirectly” murdered an Argentine prosecutor who threatened the blow the lid off Iran’s involvement in a pair of deadly bombings in Buenos Aires.
In a transcript of Shavit’s interview obtained by WND and scheduled to air on “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio” on New York’s AM 970 The Answer, the former Israeli intelligence chief said his years of experience lead him to suspect Iran is behind the death of Argentine prosecutor Alberto Nisman.
The 51-year-old Nisman was found on Jan. 18 slumped in the bathroom of his apartment with a bullet wound in his head, not long after accusing Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner of shielding Iranians sought in a pair of terrorist bombings in 1992 and 1994.
According to the Associated Press, Nisman’s death came just days after he gave a judge a report alleging Kirchner secretly reached a deal to prevent prosecution of former Iranian officials accused of involvement in the 1992 bombing of the Jewish embassy in Buenos Aires and the 1994 bombing of Argentina’s largest Jewish center, the Argentine Israelite Mutual Association. The first attack killed 29 and injured 242, the second killed 85 people and injured more than 200.
