Farc murder confession triggers judicial power clash
The first of those decisive events was the 13 February decision by federal prosecutor Gerardo Pollicita, who took over Nisman’s work, to file indict- ments against the same people targeted by Nisman for aggravated concealment (encubrimiento) and impeding or interfering with the fulfil- ment of the duties of public officials. It is now up to federal judge Daniel Rafecas, designated to take charge of this case, to determine whether there is merit in the accusation prepared by Nisman to take the case to trial. On a not entirely parallel track are the investigations into Nisman’s death by his former wife, judge Sandra Arroyo Salgado, who has been accepted as a party to the case on behalf of Nisman’s (and her) daughters.
