Investigators examining the death of a prosecutor who accused Argentine president Cristina Fernandez of agreeing to shield the alleged masterminds of a terror bombing have found a document he wrote requesting her arrest.

Chief investigator Viviana Fein said the draft detention request was found in a rubbish bin at the flat where Alberto Nisman’s body was discovered on January 18.

It was not included in a complaint the prosecutor had filed in federal court days earlier.

Mr Nisman was found dead of a gunshot wound in his bathroom hours before he was to appear in Congress to detail his allegations that Ms Fernandez agreed to protect those responsible for the 1994 bombing of Buenos Aires’ largest Jewish community centre.

The attack, which killed 85 people, remains unsolved. Ms Fernandez has dismissed the allegations against her.
