Blue Alert issued by Interpol on Argentina's behalf for former spy Antonio Stiuso

Interpol demanded the “urgent register and circulation” of the blue notice requested by the government of Argentina to locate former counterintelligence chief Antonio “Jaime” Stiuso. Earlier today, the head of the Federal Intelligence Agency (AFI) Oscar Parrilli confirmed the Foreign Ministry will be summoning U.S. Ambassador Noah Mamet following the decision of the Obama administration to refuse to cooperate with Argentina in the search for Stiuso (believed to be in the U.S. since skipping a court subpoena in February).

Stiuso’s testimony as a witness has been sought for multiple cases, including the use of numerous shell companies for money laundering and as a person of interest in the case of prosecutor Alberto Nisman’s death. The Federal Intelligence Agency (AFI) had petitioned a local court to request that Interpol issue a Blue Notice to determine his location. The AFI's is the second such request by Argentine authorities, following an earlier petition from the prosecutors at the Attorney General’s Unit for the Investigation into the 1994 AMIA attack (the office headed by Nisman for a decade until his death in January of this year).

Yesterday marks the second consecutive day that Buenos Aires has asked for greater cooperation from the United States on the AMIA probe. During her eighth and final address to the United Nations General Assembly as a head of state on Monday President Cristina Kirchner asked whether Stiuso, and other former members of SI believed to have fled the country, were currently residing on U.S. soil. “Is he here?” she asked rhetorically during her address, referring to Stiuso.

Revelations earlier this year uncovered by Parrilli showed that Stiuso had been in close contact with Nisman in the weeks before the late prosecutor was found dead on a gunshot in his apartment on January 18, just hours before he was due appear before Congress to explain a criminal complaint accusing the President herself of involvement in the alleged cover-up. The complaint, filed four days earlier with all relevant documents, was discredited by Interpol and later thrown out by multiple Argentine courts.

2. Interpol knows better though - and their opinion counts.

Interpol > right-wing trolls from Colombia. Imagine that.

3. All the fascist criminals' roads lead to Miami, don't they? They seek their own kind there.

Of course, who doesn't remember learning that Miami was, during the 1960's, the world's largest CIA station, located there to keep a closer hand on Cuba and the rest of the Americas.
