Mauricio Macri

President of Argentina

South American Jewry breathed a collective sigh of relief with the election of the pragmatic Mauricio Macri as president of Argentina.

With Cristina Fernández de Kirchner now out of office, the nation can properly focus on the unresolved case of Alberto Nisman, the Argentine federal prosecutor found dead after spending a decade investigating the 1994 Iranian-backed bombing of the AMIA Jewish center in Buenos Aires. In that massacre, 85 people were murdered and hundreds more injured.

Nisman’s lifeless body was discovered in the bathroom of his Buenos Aires apartment on Jan. 18, 2015, the night before he was due to elaborate on his formal complaint against the government of President Fernández de Kirchner in front of the Argentine Congress. 

Macri has already met with Nisman’s daughters, promising “to do justice for the memory of your father.”
