NCRI - A federal court in Argentina on Thursday declared unconstitutional a memorandum of understanding between the Argentina government and the Iranian regime in order to probe the 1994 bombing of a Jewish center in Buenos Aires,
The ruling also orders the courts to reiterate the extradition orders against the Iranian regime officials, and instructed Interpol to re-examine the immediate arrest warrants for the suspects.
Last year, Argentine prosecutor Alberto Nisman asked a judge to declare as unconstitutional an agreement between Argentina government and the Iranian regime.
In a supplemented indictment presented by Nisman, the prosecutor reiterated on the arrest warrants for seven leaders of the regime as culprits in this terrorist bombing.
The seven are: Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, the then President and current chairman of Expediency Council; Ali Akbar Velayati, the then Foreign Minister and current advisor to Ali Khamenei; Mohsen Rezaii, the then commander of IRGC; Ahmad Vahidi, the then commander of the terrorist Qods Force; Mohsen Rabbani, the then cultural envoy; and Ahmadreza Asghari, the then third secretary of mullahs’ regime embassy in Argentina.
The current Iranian regime's president, Hassan Rouhani, was also on the special government committee that plotted the bombing in Buenos Aires, according to an indictment by the Argentine government prosecutor investigating the case.
In the supplemented indictment, as well as the original one that was presented to court in 2006, special prosecutor referred to press conferences, interviews and press statements by the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) and the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) that disclosed exact details of the Iranian regime’s role in this crime.
Three weeks after the AMIA bombing, in a press conference in Washington on August 10, 1994 at the presence of dozens of reporters, the Iranian Resistance underscored that the AMIA bombing has been planned and organized by regime’s Supreme National Security Council.
