TORONTO, May 6, 2015 /CNW/ – The Law Society of Upper Canada is deeply concerned about the death of prosecutor Alberto Nisman in Argentina.
Reports indicate that on January 18, 2015, Alberto Nisman, Argentine state prosecutor, was found dead in his apartment. The cause of death was identified as a gunshot wound to the head.
Four days prior to his death, he had accused President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner and Foreign Minister Héctor Timerman of conspiring to cover up Iran’s alleged involvement in a 1994 attack on a Jewish community centre located in Buenos Aires that killed 85 people. Alberto Nisman had spent more than 10 years investigating this case and he was scheduled to testify before Congress about this matter on January 19, 2015.
