After having been such a big deal in Argentina over the last few months, all of the controversy suddenly went away. While this ruling has nothing to do with the other investigation into Alberto Nisman’s “suicide,” this is a huge victory for President Kirchner, because she will not be charged with any crimes.
The Prosecutor was very clear cut: there was a lack of evidence, so there was no crime committed. While I disagree with the latter of this statement, I do agree with the conclusion that there is a lack of evidence to charge the President.
Despite this positive ruling for President Kirchner, her popularity has plummeted and will likely never recover from this.
