The president of Bolivia, Evo Morales, today expressed his condolences for the death of the Argentine Hector Timerman, who was chancellor of that country during the Government of Cristina Fernandez.
"Our sorrow and condolences for the death of the brother ex-chancellor of #Argentina, Héctor Timerman, afflicted by the disease and attacked by judicial and political persecution," Morales wrote on Twitter.
The Bolivian leader, who was an ally of Fernandez's government, expressed his solidarity with the family of Timerman and with the former president of Argentina.
Timerman, who occupied the post between 2010 and 2015, died today at age 65 as a result of liver cancer he suffered for some years, confirmed his brother, Javier Timerman, in a message on a social network.
The exautoridad declared by videoconference last July for the cause that investigates the alleged cover-up of the terrorist attack suffered by a mutual Jewish, AMIA, in 1994 in Buenos Aires, which left 85 dead and remains without responsibility.
In his speech, the ex-chancellor pleaded not guilty and denounced that the trial was proceeding slowly, something he attributed to the interests of countries such as the United States and Israel.
Due to his delicate state of health, Timerman had been in custody since the beginning of December of last year when he was tried for this cause, and later received an extraordinary release for "humanitarian reasons", to travel to the United States and receive treatment against his Cancer.
