Iran, September 2, 2019–Concerns are escalating in Tehran over the upcoming prosecution of a diplomat-terrorist affiliated to Iran’s regime, according to al-Watan daily of Saudi Arabia.
Sources in the Iranian Resistance are reporting increasing concerns among Iranian regime officials over the prosecution of Asdollah Assadi, a diplomat terrorist of this regime arrested by German authorities and extradited to Belgium. Assadi was the lead man of Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) in Europe and Iraq, and in charge of implementing terror attacks.
With sanctions imposed by the U.S. on Iranian regime Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, once again it has been proven to the world how the mullahs’ regime is the Godfather of state terrorism across the globe, according to these sources.
The mullahs’ regime has during the past three decades attempted to cloak this reality by blaming its terror attacks on the regime’s so-called hardliners to also portray a “moderate” image of figures such as Iranian regime President Hassan Rouhani and Zarif.
The mullahs’ report card and strategy on the international stage pursues two political and terrorist objectives, each completing the other. Tehran’s use of the Foreign Ministry’s different branches and its embassies during the past 30 years to pursue their terrorism and bribery is a topic in need of a separate investigation.
Through the course of 2018, six high-ranking figures of this regime’s embassies, including the ranks of ministers, were expelled from various European countries.
In regards to Assadi, the mullahs’ regime followed a number of plots and conspiracies to prevent his prosecution and provide for his release before any court hearing. The mullahs are extremely concerned his prosecution in court will grow in proportions and shed light on their terrorist measures.
Iran’s regime, in a continuous effort to prevent Assadi’s prosecution, has resorted to public threats. Keyhan daily, known as the mouthpiece of Iranian regime Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, issued threats two months ago to take similar measures against European countries.
On February 2, 2018, the Independent website cited a senior official saying European security officials are announcing that the Iranian regime diplomat had a role in the terror plot intending to target an opposition rally outside of Paris and cooperated with his colleagues in Tehran.
It is worth noting Zarif has acknowledged his close collaboration with Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) Quds Force chief Qassem Soleimani very recently.
"Soleimani and I decided to meet once a week in Tehran to discuss latest developments and coordination. We have been working together directly. Since the negotiations over Afghanistan we have been in direct contact with each other and we are coordinated to manage all issues. During the U.S. attack on Iraq, being the Iran’s representative in New York, I conducted talks with American officials under orders from our own senior officials. During this period, I had the utmost coordination with Soleimani,” Zarif explained.
