Argentine state prosecutor says Iran set up terrorist networks in Guyana – 5th Jun 2013
The Argentine state prosecutor who has made the claim of terror cells in Guyana is investigating the 1994 bombing of a Jewish community center in the Argentine Capital that killed 85 people. Argentine courts have long accused Iran of sponsoring the attack.
The prosecutor has accused Iran of setting up terror cells in Guyana and other Caribbean countries, but the Government here wants to know why Guyana was implicated.
The Head of the Presidential Secretariat, Dr. Roger Luncheon said that the regional trade and integration bloc CARICOM could also demand answers from Argentina on the allegations.
The prosecutor said new evidence underscored the responsibility of Mohsen Rabbani, the former Iranian cultural attache in Argentina, as mastermind of the bombing and “coordinator of the Iranian infiltration of South America, especially in Guyana.”
That Iranian cultural attache, the prosecutor said, showed that he had connections to Abdul Kadir – who was sentenced to life in prison in 2010, for participating in a foiled plan to attack John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York.
Mr. Kadir, a Guyanese, received instructions, the prosecutor claim, from the Iranian attache and carried out the Iranian infiltration in Guyana, whose structure was nearly identical to that established by the attache in Argentina.
