Argentine Federal Judge and former wife of special prosecutor Alberto Nisman, Sandra Arroyo Delgado confirmed that she will be participating at Wednesday's “Silence march” together with her two daughters, Iara and Kala. It was a last minute announcement.

 In a release signed “Arroyo Salgado and daughters” the magistrate thanked for the support of all those that will be marching on the month since the still unsolved death of her former husband, and explained the reasons for attending together with her daughters, which is to pay homage to the work displayed by Nisman as a prosecutor and “with no political or social motives involved”.

The massive and public call for the march which was supported by voices from other social, political and media sectors, which added to their attendance different demands, thus generating controversy, “puts us in the need, as a family to make clear that our presence is to acknowledge the person Nisman was, and the officer of unconditional and brave commitment to his work which we want to underline”, said the release.

The Judge who last week was in Congress where she met with members of the opposition to express her opinion about how the suspicious death of Nisman case was being addressed, and the independence of the Judicial branch, thanked beforehand ”all those who will be participating with that sole purpose (of paying homage to Nisman) and at the same time request that the family’s wish and that of other citizens is shared in that purpose, and takes place in the framework of peace and respect”.

The mother of Nisman, and other members of the family had anticipated they would be attending the silent march.

    Does anybody with half a brain or more still think it was suicide?

    @1 There is 20% of Ks that are still waiting for a clear official line like a GPS in permanent recalculating mode ; that it was suicide or that Stiuso some overnight Argentine Keyser Soze they never heard of, tried to implicate the government by……………… staging a suicide instead of a murder (?)

    But I guess that your category “half a brain” discriminates that statistical group completely

    #1 and #2:
    Not at all. Argentines have now exhausted their speculation capacity (all but Clarín) and have decided to let the justice system determine what happened.
    In any event, the brouhaha created by Nisman's accusation against president Fernández is rapidly fading, as the accusation and its version rehashed by prosecutor Pollicita have so many holes it can't survive common-sense analysis, let alone judicial.
