Argentine court strikes down 'truth commission' deal with Iran

Published: 05.16.14, 07:53 / Israel News

BUENOS AIRES - An Argentine Federal court on Thursday struck down an agreement between the South American country and Iran to jointly investigate the deadly 1994 bombing of a Buenos Aires Jewish community center that local courts blamed on Tehran.

 

Alberto Nisman, a prosecutor who oversaw an investigation of the AMIA center explosion that killed 85 people, had argued in his appeal to the court that in negotiating the 2013 deal with Iran, the executive branch had overstepped into areas reserved for the judiciary.

 

The government said it would appeal the decision to Argentina's Supreme Court.(Reuters)
