Money-laundering case reaches Cassation Court

The country’s highest criminal court will soon begin the process of determining if a key piece of evidence in the money-laundering investigation against late AMIA special prosecutor Alberto Nisman’s mother, Sara Garfunkel, and Diego Lagomarsino — the IT expert who lent Nisman the gun that killed him — can be considered admissible.

Lawyers representing Claudio Picón, whom has also been charged in connection with a US bank account registered to the name of Nisman’s mother, Nisman’s sister and Lagomarsino containing US$666,000, has requested that the courts dismiss a report by a US anti-laundering organization on the grounds that it contains classified information and “cannot be considered proof or evidence and thus cannot be included in any court proceedings.”

The request to dismiss the money-laundering report has been rejected by lower courts, but the case is now in the hands of the members of the First Division of the Federal Cassation Court.
