Argentinian president Cristina Fernandez says she’s “convinced” prosecutor Alberto Nisman did not commit suicide.

In a letter published today by state news agency Telam, Ms Fernandez says all the questions about Mr Nisman’s death “have been converted into certainty. The suicide (I’m convinced) was not a suicide.”

Ms Fernandez’s letter contrasts with the one she wrote on Monday saying she believed Mr Nisman took his life.

The 51-year-old Mr Nisman was found slumped in the bathroom of his apartment pm Sunday night with a bullet wound in his head.

Four days beforehand, Mr Nisman gave a judge a 289-page report alleging Ms Fernandez secretly reached a deal to prevent prosecution of former Iranian officials accused of involvement in the 1994 car bombing of Argentina’s largest Jewish center.

Ms Fernandez dismissed those accusations in today’s letter.
