THE NEW REPORT, which was obtained by The Associated Press, bases its conclusions on controversial new evidence and sharply contradicts earlier official findings that the prosecutor likely killed himself

An investigation by the country’s border police agency has concluded that the man who led that terror probe was murdered just four days after he formally accused then-President Cristina Fernandez of covering up the role of former Iranian officials who had been charged in the 1994 bombing of a Jewish community centre that killed 85 people.

The new report, which was obtained by The Associated Press, bases its conclusions on controversial new evidence and sharply contradicts earlier official findings that Alberto Nisman likely killed himself.

Nisman, 51, was found dead on January 18, 2015 – the morning before he was supposed to present a report on the bombing to Argentine lawmakers – with a bullet in his right temple. A .22 calibre pistol was found next to him.
