Argentine judge seeks arrest of ex-President Fernandez for treason

Judge Claudio Bonadio asked lawmakers to remove Fernandez's immunity from arrest, which she gained upon being elected senator.

Argentina and Israel accuse Iran and Lebanon's "Hezbollah" of involvement in the AMIA bombing.

The alleged deal is said to have allowed the suspects to be interviewed by Argentine magistrates in Tehran rather than in Buenos Aires.

After devoting nearly a decade to the case, Nisman obtained Interpol "red notices", or global arrest warrants, against five senior Iranian officials who he identified as the masterminds behind the bombing.

On his request, British authorities in 2003 arrested Iran's former ambassador to Buenos Aires, Hadi Soleimanpour, but he was released on bail for lack of evidence.

In a press conference Thursday at the parliament in Buenos Aires, Kirchner was indignant.

The timing, as well as the circumstances, was suspicious.

An Argentine federal judge has ordered that the former president Cristina Fern√°ndez de Kirchner be jailed pending prosecution in connection with charges that she helped to hide Iran's alleged involvement in a 1994 terrorist attack in Buenos Aires in which 85 people died. Right before Nisman was to present his findings to the Argentine Congress, he was found dead. Fernandez and the other defendants have several options to appeal, which could drag the case out for years.

Carlos Menem, who was president from 1989-1999, is under investigation for obstructing the inquiry, though the case against him is still at a preliminary stage.

In his 491-page ruling, Bonadio wrote that the 1994 attack on the AMIA center, which killed 85 people and left more than 150 injured, and a 1992 attack on the Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires, were "acts of war" by Iran against Argentina.

Earlier on Thursday, two lower level allies of Fernandez were arrested in the same case on Bonadio's order: Carlos Zannini, a legal adviser, and Luis D'Elia, the leader of a group of protesters allied with her government.

In October, in testimony to Bonadio, Kirchner denied covering up for the Iranians.

Along with Menem, a former federal judge in charge of the case, two ex-prosecutors, a former police commissioner, former intelligence chief and a leading figure in the Jewish community are also facing charges.

All are charged with "treason against the Fatherland" for having signed the pact with Iran, though the 2012 memorandum never went into practice as it was not endorsed by the Iranian parliament.
