An Argentinean court has ordered the probe of the country's Jewish ex-interior minister for his alleged ties to the AMIA Jewish center bombing which left 85 people dead and hundreds wounded.
The Jerusalem Post reported on Monday that the Federal Appeals Court in the Argentinean capital, Buenos Aires, last week ordered the investigation of Carlos Vladimir Corach for allegedly giving an illegal payment of 400,000 dollars to Carlos Telleldin, an auto mechanic who was among those charged in the 1994 bombing.
According to the report, Telleldin, who is accused of providing the car bomb that blew up the Jewish center, has not been indicted.
The three Appeals Court justices urged Federal Judge Ariel Lijo to probe “the existence of concrete allegations involving Carlos Vladimir Corach, which have not been investigated until now,” the report added.
Corach was interior minister during the government of former Argentinean President Carlos Menem in the 1990s.
