A computer belonging to Alberto Nisman, the Argentine prosecutor who was found dead in suspicious circumstances earlier this year, was accessed more than 60 times after his death.
Judicial sources told Argentine newspaper Clarin that the laptop was “entered” multiple times at 8.07pm on Sunday January 18. The autopsy ruled that Nisman, 51, was dead by 3pm – shot in the head in the bathroom of his Buenos Aires apartment.
His accusations against Argentine president Cristina Kirchner four days before his death – that she had covered up Iranian responsability for the country’s worst ever terrorist attack – made him a high-profile, controversial figure.
