Interpol issued a “blue notice” ordering all its agencies around the world to search for and locate former Argentine Intelligence Secretariat (SI) Operations chief Antonio “Jaime” Stiuso so that the Attorney General’s Unit for the Investigation into the attack on the AMIA Jewish community centre (UFI AMIA) could issue a new subpoena to question him about his role in the probe.

    These bombings are ages ago and now cold cases that have been beyond Argntina's abilities to investigate for over 2 decades.........

    So now why the sudden urgency?

    No spacers either, I bet. :o)

    I wonder if the notice states 'there's a little Bersa waiting for you'?

    As we have seen in the matter of Julian Assange, it's perfectly okay to question someone via video-link.

    Interpol isn't able to 'order' anybody to do anything. It's remit is to facilitate co-operation between police forces.

    Quite right. Interpol is nothing more than an international police liaison organisation. It has no police powers. No powers of arrest outside its own individual members borders. Think I'm correct in also saying that a blue notice is nothing more than a please locate notice. Which it would do for any member. If Argentina had any case, they would have applied for an International arrest warrant through the appropriate courts. Which they have not done, probably because they know those courts do not issue warrants for so called political crimes. Argentina calls itself a ferkin democracy. Now that is a laugh!

    More distraction by La Kretina, nothing more.

    Jaime Stiuso left the country when a picture of his involvement with the U.S and Israel secret services became clear in the aftermath of prosecutor Alberto Nisman's death.
    Stiuso and Nisman's relationship and Stiuso's refusal to answer numerous calls from Nisman in the hours preceding the prosecutor's death make the former intelligence czar a person of interest to Argentina.
    Of course, the posters above have already solved the case--before everybody else did--using their “privileged information.”
    Thankfully, posting in MP only serves to comfort their little egos.

    He was sacked by CFK, why would he want anything to do with her? He decided to leave the country and so would I in the circumstances. I would dissapear too if someone close to me was killed or suisided and no-one has a clue what is going on. Why does it take sooooo looooong to decide whether it was murder or suiside in Argentina, probably because they are incompetant. You and I are fortunate that we do not live there to suffer what the Argentinians are going through.

    Your empathy for a dubious character such as Stiuso is sooo commendable.
    ”I would dissapear too if someone close to me was killed or suisided (sic) and no-one has a clue what is going on.“
    Why, isn't it moving that harsh critics of all things ”Argie” government such as ilsen, reality check, darragh, ChrisR, Frank and Skip suddenly appear as having developed a soft spot for a character such as Stiuso?
    Why, even Conqueror, so fast to suggest deployment of fighter jets and nuke devastation has suddenly become a little lamb judiciously telling us that the former intelligence czar could answer Argentine judges conference--nothing less!
    All the while remaining in his convenient U.S. safe heaven.

    Excuse me but where exactly have I demonstrated a 'soft spot' for Stiuso?

    My comment concerned what Interpol is able to do I didn't mention Stiuso or the Argentine Government.

    Corruptina Kirchner and her cronies are desperate, very desperate, and frightened, very, very frightened, because they know Stiuso is spilling the beans about Nisman and other Argentine crimes to the judicial authorities in the US. It was so damning the way the gargoyle-faced Presidenta shrieked and squawked about Stiuso at the UN General Assembly. Normally she rants and rails about the Falklands but this time not a word about those peaceful and prosperous islands. It proved the fear that is coursing through Corruptina's multitude of varicose vins. She can see the prison gates opening to welcome her soon. Justice at last.

    Pot, kettle, black Enrique all the while remaining in his convenient U.S. safe haven, got to laugh. Why does Argentina want to speak to him? They have had years to speak to him but no, they sack him and expect him to be grateful. PMSL

    The guessing is over. Interpol has confirmed what everyone was suspecting: in February this year Stiuso flew from Brazil to Miami on an Italian passport.
