Prosecutor confirms Nisman's detention draft found

Prosecutor in charge of investigating the death of Alberto Nisman Viviana Fein has rectified information regarding a draft document involving a detention request for President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner whose existence she had first denied. It has been a "mistake," Fein said explaining the draft papers are part of Nisman's death case.

"I want to make something clear. Yesterday, I issued a statemen by the Public Ministry, it was not done in my office. The Public Ministry works implacably right. It was an interpretation mistake," Viviana Fein told reporters this morning pointing out the draft AMIA special prosecutor Alberto Nisman had prepared seeking the detention of President Kirchner for her alleged involvement in covering Iran's role in the 1994 bombing of the Jewish community center did exist.

"I want to tell all media that I assume responsibility for the mistake. We have 1,400 working papers. I am in the margins of any political position and have no pressures. I can not talk about times. Nobody is lying, (information) is not distorted, it was a mistake," Fein assured.

On Monday, the prosecutor had denied the existence of such documentation after the Clarín newspaper reported Nisman was working on the detention request with a draft paper found in his apartment after his death.

Following the statement by the prosecutor, Cabinet Chief Jorge Capitanich yesterday ripped up pages of the daily in an attempt to show Clarín - one of the government's leading media critics -, was providing inaccurate information on the Nisman case and his alleged intention to demand CFK's detention.

Today, in his daily press briefing to the press at the government house, Capitanich blamed "ousted intelligence groups" for the information that prompted his reaction.

"It is a strategy plotted clearly by ousted intelligence groups. Looking for trash in possible documents, which are not part of the report, it has no sense," the head of ministers stated today.
