A scientific study published in the

Journal of Experimental Psychology

in the United States reached the following conclusion: throughout life, human beings keep an average of

13 secrets that will be taken to the grave.

Now it will begin to reveal if any of the spies who were active in the hours before the prosecutor Alberto Nisman was found dead will keep what happened for life, or if someone

will break the slogan.

If nothing unexpected appears - for example, a judicial fair anticipated by Covid, as the Council of the Magistracy has just requested - from this Tuesday, April 20, the first 14 of the 89 agents of the former SIDE will begin to testify as witnesses. who worked between January 14, 2015 - when Nisman denounced then-President Cristina Kirchner for covering up the authors of the AMIA attack - and on Sunday 18, when the prosecutor was found dead in his apartment.

Justice investigates the case as

a planned murder.

Among the first round of subpoenas are men and women.

Nine left the intelligence agency in the months after Nisman's death.

The other five

are still active agents.

If judicial activity is not suspended due to the coronavirus, they will testify

one by one, every day,

for three weeks.

In the hours before one of the guards found the body of the prosecutor, all of them formed operational cells in the street and communicated with a fleet of devices assigned to the then director of the

Internal Meeting

of the SIDE, Fernando Pocino.

This was Cristina Kirchner's most trusted operative chief, with whom she had worked when she was a national senator.

As determined by the call crossings made by the Federal Police for two years, Pocino centralized most of those communications while reporting to

Señor Ocho

, the second head of the SIDE, who is currently the Vice Minister of Justice Juan Martín Mena.

This official explained this year -after


revealed those calls, last January- that the agents were actively working those days investigating the theft of a missile from the Army and a hypothesis of confrontation between barrabravas from Boca and River who were going to play the Cup Of summer.

The missile had been stolen in La Plata and the superclassic would be in Mar del Plata, but there were agents who on January 18 moved

in Puerto Madero and Martínez.

Nisman was already dead in Puerto Madero, although

his body had not yet been found.

In Martínez lives Diego Lagomarsino, the former Nisman employee who brought to the crime scene the 22 pistol that fired the murderous bullet.

In the file there are witnesses who suggested that Lagomarsino could be an intelligence agent.

The spies come to testify six years after Nisman's death.

The first prosecutor in the case, Viviana Fein - who said that


she had not been able to prove a suicide - admitted that they took the case

"just as she began to investigate the intelligence forces."

On them these days the magnifying glass of the investigation returns, now in charge of the prosecutor Eduardo Taiano.

Meanwhile, the cell phones and computers of Lagomarsino and Nisman's custodians have yet to be analyzed, instead of protecting him, they left him alone for 15 hours.

For Justice, the prosecutor

was assassinated within that period.

The contents of these devices have already been appraised, but the defense of Lagomarsino - the study of Maximiliano Rusconi, which also defends Julio De Vido and Lázaro Báez -

is opposed to the prosecution seeing them.

The last word on this is the Supreme Court of Justice, which, unusually, has kept the subject


for a year.
