The administration of President Cristina Fernandez has ordered the declassification of all files connected with the attack against the AMIA Jewish community center that took place in 1994 in Buenos Aires City. Some of the documents were already in the hands of the special prosecutor in charge of investigating the bombing, now late Alberto Nisman.

 The decision follows a request by the new prosecutors leading the AMIA probe. It was published on Friday under the 395/2015 decree in the Argentine official gazette, setting the “declassification” of such files which include as well additional information currently in power of the recently created Federal Intelligence Agency and documentation that might not have been referred to the AMIA special prosecutor's office.

AMIA prosecutors Roberto Javier Salum, Sabrina Namer and Patricio Sabadini requested to have the documents declassified on March 10 with the government giving a green light to the decision on March 11.

In their write, Salum, Namer and Sabadini demanded to have “all off the documentation that was opportunely the object of consultation within the framework of the Unity of Revelation of Information, which was referred to this Unit through the Resolution SI ‘R’ N° 119/.6, security code N° 538” (declassified). This with the objective of guaranteeing the full access to the parts of such documents”.

    The AMIA bombing is no longer the point, they were already available to the press, everybody knows that it was the Iranians who did it, including you old whore....

    What needs to be declassified is the negotiations with Iran to whitewash the Iranian oficials and the nuclear-arms deal that came behind it

    I agree, Is this just another ruse to appear 'transparent' whilst hiding the truth.
    They are very good at this. I expect another 'distraction' soon.

    Transparency is rare among governments, and CFK practices just that. The AMIA bombing investigation has been paralyzed for 20 years, including the last decade during which the late Prosecutor Alberto Nisman was in charge. The team of new prosecutors asked for the release, and Cristina just did it. If she hadn't, critics like the two above would be crying out loud CFK's “secrecy.”
