Infobae has released thousands of audio files collected by Nisman before his death. These 40,000 phone call recordings formed the basis for the prosecutor’s decision to accuse Cristina for covering up those responsible for the AMIA attack.
The files were provided by one of Nisman’s collaborators, who was given a copy before the prosecutor’s tragic death on 13th January. The case has since been taken over by Gerardo Pollicita, who requested on February 13th that Cristina be accused of covering up the details about the AMIA bombing.
Last Wednesday, after examining the evidence, judge Daniel Rafecas dismissed the accusation, concluding that Nisman’s case was not supported well enough. However, these files show the extraordinary depth of Nisman’s investigation; he was determined to prove that the Government was secretly working to exculpate those involved in order to strengthen relations with Iran.
Infobae has decided to release the files unedited. Infobae explained that by releasing all 40,000 files, they are enabling everyone to analyze the recordings and come to their own conclusions about the truth or the falseness of the information provided: “We prefer not to impose a criteria but to honor everyone’s individual right to access the information freely, one of the fundamental cornerstones of a free society”.
Among these 40,000 files is every recording related to the AMIA cover-up, though only a few of them were included in the accusation. When Rafecas dismissed the denunciation last week, he had not listened to all 40,000 files. Clearly, it would have been impossible for the judge to listen to every recording; today Rafecas admitted that he only listened to the small number of files provided to him by Pollicita.
Nevertheless, Rafecas’ verdict is not set in stone and could still be appealed.
Does this change the situation at all? Maybe, maybe not. Not one of the calls contains Cristina’s voice, and many of the calls are pretty irrelevant anyway, consisting entirely of dial tones and voicemail…Have a listen to some of the files and see for yourself.
