NUCLEAR SCIENTIST SHAHRAM AMIRI EXECUTED IN IRAN
On Tuesday 07/13/2010 morning, Iranian State Media claimed Shahram Amiri found refuge in the Pakistani embassy in Washington, which represent Iranian interests in USA. A spokesman from Pakistan’s Foreign Office, Abdul Basit, told the BBC, few hours later, that Shahram Amiri was, indeed, seeking immediate repatriation to Iran.
In the last two months there is a growing row between Iran and USA about the fate of the Iranian nuclear scientist Sharam Amiri, who disappeared in Saudi Arabia in 05/2009. Iran said they have evidence Shahram Amiri was abducted by CIA agents to USA.
On Sunday 06/06/2010 a video footage was distributed in the web in which alleged Dr. Shahram Amiri claimed he was kidnapped and tortured last year by American agents. In a second video, the next day, another alleged Shahram Amiri said he was studying happily in the United States.
* Security officials in USA confirmed, on Thursday 07/15/2010, that Shahram Amiri was in CIA payroll since 2007 and provided useful information. He defected willingly and received about $5 millions for his services, which he cannot use in Iran due to USA and international sanctions. President Barack Obama admitted that the return of Shahram Amiri to Iran is, indeed, a sort of confusion since potential deserters and informants are, for now, much more deterred.
According to the officials, Shahram Amiri was also one of the sources that helped author a controversial report published by the American National Intelligence in 2007, which claimed Tehran halted its nuclear weapons program back in 2003 (see – BUSHS LAST YEAR). It raises the concern that Shahram Amiri was planted by Iran into American intelligence deliberately, giving up some genuine real information, in order to manipulate the American intelligence about the real status of Iran’s nuclear program. If so it is one of the successful Iranian intelligence operation since Ahmed Chalabi’s affair in 2003 (see -US INTEL SOURCES).
** Iran confirmed, on Sunday 08/07/2016, Shahram Amiri was detained, soon after he returned to Iran, over spying for the USA and was executed by hanging recently . They said Shahram Amiri “provided the enemy with vital information of the country.”
