Before march, Argentina government lashes out at Justice Dept

The Argentine government’s executive branch is criticizing the Justice Department ahead of a silent march organized by investigating attorneys demanding answers in the mysterious death of prosecutor Alberto Nisman.

Cabinet chief Jorge Capitanich told reporters Wednesday that the Justice Department “works on a corporative strategy with a tendency toward political destabilization.”

Nisman, 51, was found shot dead in his apartment on January 18. The next day, Nisman planned to take to Congress his allegations that President Cristina Kirchner and others in her administration reached a secret deal with Iran to shield officials allegedly involved in the 1994 bombing of Jewish community center. Kirchner has denied the allegations.
