July 18, 2018 marks the 24th anniversary since the tragic bombing of the AMIA Jewish Center in Buenos Aires, Argentina. In this episode, B'nai B'rith International CEO Daniel S. Mariaschin talks with B'nai B'rith International's Special Advisor on Latin American Affairs Adriana Camisar about a critical recent development in this case. Alberto Nisman, the federal prosecutor who had been investigating the case, was found dead in his apartment in January of 2015, right after accusing the Argentinian government of giving cover to Iran for planning and executing the bombing via its proxy Hezbollah. A federal chamber ruled--three and a half years later--that Nisman's death was indeed a murder and not a suicide.
