AMIA: Prosecutor accuses Iran of infiltrating South American countries
In a 500-page indictment realeased today, the General Prosecutor in the AMIA case, Alberto Nisman, accused the Iranian regime of “infiltrating” several South American countries “by building local clandestine intelligence stations designed to sponsor, foster and execute terrorist attacks, within the principles to export the Islamic revolution.
“Based in countless reports, evidence, testimonies, court and investigative records related to other countries of the region, North America and Europe, including rulings of foreign courts against the Iranian regime, he proved the identical decision-making mechanism, planning and execution of terrorist attacks verified in different countries, which were judicially attributed to Iranian intelligence agents,” according to a briefing sent to the media
In this presentation, Nisman was able to corroborate and strengthen with new evidence, the responsibility of the highest authorities of the Islamic Republic of Iran in the AMIA bombing, which cost the life of 85 people, stressing the higher decree of responsibility that Mohsen Rabbani had not only in the attack, but also as a coordinator of the Iranian infiltration in South America.
The document added the prosecution stated the frame and context in which the AMIA bombing occurred, showing that it did not constitute anb isolated event, but a part of a bigger image, dominated by the strong and aggressive Iranian infiltration in the region in which Rabbani did not limit himself to Argentina, but, and based on the gathered evidence, extended his activities to guyana and to several South American countries in his role as a coordinator for the region.
BREAKING NEWS. AMIA CASE: ARGENTINIAN PROSECUTOR NISMAN ACCUSED IRAN -AND FUGITIVE MOHSEN RABBANI IN PARTICULAR- OF INFILTRATING SEVERAL SOUTHAMERICAN COUNTRIES, BUILDING LOCAL CLANDESTINE INTELLIGENCE STATIONS DESIGNED TO SPONSOR, FOSTER AND EXECUTE TERRORIST ATTACKS WITHIN THE REGION.
Throughout a lengthy and very strong indictment of more than 500 pages, released
today, the General Prosecutor in the AMIA case, Alberto Nisman, accused the Iranian
regime of infiltrating several South American countries by building local clandestine
intelligence stations designed to sponsor, foster and execute terrorist attacks, within the
principles to export the Islamic revolution. Based in countless reports, evidence,
testimonies, court and investigative records related to other countries of the region,
North America and Europe –including rulings of foreign courts against the Iranian
regime-, he proved the identical decision-making mechanism, planning and execution of
terrorist attacks verified in different countries, which were judicially attributed to
Iranian intelligence agents.
For the first time, and without precedents, it has been proved in a court file the steps of
the infiltration plan. Also, the Prosecutor proved the way in which the fundamentalist
terrorism, sponsored and financed by Iran, operates and hides in South America, its
networks and operational system. This intelligence and terrorist network had already
caused devastating consequences in Argentina in 1994 and almost strike again in the
United States in 2007, when the blowing of fuel pipes and tanks of “John F. Kennedy”
New York´s International Airport was dodged by the timely intervention of US law
enforcements agencies, which –in this case- led to the arrest of the plotters and their
conviction to life imprisonment. Throughout the investigation have emerged strong
traces of identical situations, this is to say, the establishment of intelligence bases and
centers, which could be being replicated in several countries, such as Brazil, Paraguay,
Uruguay, Chile, Colombia, Guyana, Trinidad and Tobago and Suriname. These
discoveries entitled Mr. Nisman, in compliance with judicial assistance and international
cooperation agreements and also with counterterrorism and human rights treaties
ratified by Argentina, to send copies of this indictment to the pertinent judicial
authorities of the above referred countries. He also requested INTERPOL to increase the
precautions and take further measures in order to detain all the defendants in the AMIA
case with international arrest warrant.
In this presentation, Nisman was able to corroborate and strengthen with new evidence,
the responsibility of the highest authorities of the Islamic Republic of Iran in the AMIA
bombing, which cost the life of 85 people, stressing –in particular- the higher degree of
responsibility that Mohsen Rabbani had no only in the attack, but also as a coordinator
of the Iranian infiltration in South America, especially in Guyana, through his disciple
Abdul Kadir, the most important Iranian agent in this country, former Mayor of Linden
and former national congressman, now convicted to life imprisonment for conspiracy to
attack New York´s airport. Moreover, the Prosecutor proved –based in documents
seized from Kadir´s house in Guyana- that Abdul Kadir was Rabbani´s disciple, received
orders from him and led the Iranian infiltration in his country, building an intelligence
structure very similar in its components, ways of implementation and purpose to that
established by Rabbani in Argentina. Kadir was trained and supported by Teheran and
was finally arrested while boarding a plane in order to flight to Iran.
The Prosecution also stated the frame and context in which the AMIA bombing
occurred, showing that it did not constitute an isolated event, but a part of a bigger
image, dominated by the strong and aggressive Iranian infiltration in the region in which
Rabbani did not limited himself to Argentina, but –and based on the gathered evidence-
extended his activities to Guyana and to several South American countries in his role as
a coordinator for the region. The Prosecutor confirmed that Samuel Salman El Reda,
responsible of the local operative group and fugitive in this case, used a false Colombian
identity and citizenship to enter Argentina several years before the AMIA bombing,
without raising suspicions, and hidden his affiliation to Hezbollah, terrorist organization
which today still provides El Reda with cover and protection in Lebanon. In this
presentation, it was also unveiled the real scope that, in our country, had the Iranian
Embassy, the Iranian Cultural Attaché’ Office –under Rabbani- and several front
companies, which provided means and coverage to those involved in the attack so they
could perpetrate the terrorist act with impunity.
In other words, the AMIA bombing, as well as the thwarted attack to JFK´s airport and
those terrorist activities judicially attributed to Iranian agents by several European
courts, must not be conceived as a single picture, but as a segment in a larger sequence.
The Prosecution Unit was able to demonstrate that the Iranian Regime organized a
Seminar on the subject of the Ideal Islamic Government, held in Teheran in 1982, which
was attended by approximately 380 religious men from 70 countries. This meeting was a
turning point on the regime’s method to export the revolution (understood as the
cultural, political and religious infiltration promoted to expand a radical and violent
vision of Islam) which included, since then, the use of violence and terrorism when
necessary. That was stated, among others, by the First Commander of Revolutionary
Guard Corps, Javad Mansouri, who declared: “Our Revolution can only be exported by
grenades and explosives”, and subsequently summoned each Iranian Embassy to turn
into an intelligence center.
As a consequence of what have been decided in the 1982 seminar regarding the new
violent method to export the revolution, many relevant appointments were made the
following years. In 1984 the mullah Mohammad Tabataei Einaki was sent to Brazil, from
where he was expelled because of his involvement and links with the terrorist
organization Hezbollah. In 1983, the Islamic Republic of Iran accepted Abdul Kadir as its
agent in Guyana, who ended up convicted for the terrorist conspiracy to attack New
York´s Airport. And also in 1983 the regime sent Mohsen Rabbani to settle in Argentina
who, many years later, ended up seriously involved in the AMIA bombing. These facts
contribute to assert that all these Iranian agents were committed executors of the
decisions made in that seminar.
The repetition of violent actions is not a coincidence. It is the manifestation of a radical
policy which is characterized by the dual use of diplomatic offices, cultural or charity
associations and even mosques, as coverage to hide illegal activities. This is to say that
associations and institutions and other legitimate organizations and activities are used
to hide criminal and terrorist objectives and actions. Within these lines, the Prosecutor
has enhanced the key role of embassies and Iranian diplomacy in these activities and
the real scope and proportion of the Iranian and Hezbollah´s infiltration in the region. To
reach these conclusions, the prosecution documented with the most solid evidence that
many Iranian intelligent agents were sent to the region under diplomatic coverage,
which turned out to be the compliance of Teheran´s instructions and a broader strategy
for the region.
