Zarif: Iran is not involved in the death of Argentine prosecutor

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said at the economic forum in Davos that Iran has no connection with the death of Argentine prosecutor Albert Nisman, who accused the President of Argentina and the Foreign Minister of this country of a conspiracy in the case of the investigation into the terrorist attack on a Jewish cultural center in 1994.

On Monday night it became known that the prosecutor was found dead in his apartment in Buenos Aires.

“It’s unfortunate that certain people try to keep this alive in Argentina in order to make political mileage out of it,” cited the head of Iran’s Foreign Ministry. “It has nothing to do with Iran,” he said.

The death of the prosecutor who filed the judge to question the Iranian President and Foreign Minister, as well as to impose an embargo on their property to the amount of 200 million pesos (about $23 million), stirred up Argentinean society.

Politicians and public figures have demanded an investigation into all the circumstances of his death.
