Iranian Spies in Sweden

Persian language service of the Voice of America reports that two Iranian individuals are charged with espionage in Sweden. One of them was working in disguise as an opposition figure and the other person is believed to be a security officer in the Iranian embassy. As I understand they'll be deported to Iran.

I'll let you know more about this as soon as more details come out.

Ardavan Khoshnood has been highlighting this story on his blog. (see link on my blog)

A terrorist-spy working for the Islamist Republic occupying Iran was discovered by the swedish secret service several years ago but no action was taken against this individual and to this date he still lives in Sweden. Last week a swedish newspaper once again highlighted the case. The organization Rastakhiz Iran has now sent a formal complaint to the Swedish Justice Ministry regarding this case.

The majority of Iranians in Sweden would agree with the notion that the Swedish government did not want to endanger their lucrative trade-relations with the Islamist regime and hence did nothing to apprehend the Islamist-sent spy.

I didn't see that but Radio Farda is also reporting the same story from Sweden. It's about time to kick these bastards out of our communities~!

I don't agree that they should be kicked out. A few years ago a terrorist of the Islamic Republic (involved in opposition murders abroad) was discovered in Sweden and was quickly sent back to Iran so as to not make a big thing out of it.

These terrorists have to be detained, put on trial, and brought to justice! Not sent back to Iran where they will be sent on new assignments!

It's hard enough to help the opposition people. We need to send Iran a message. If all we are willing to do is return them if they get caught, what the hell man? If that was my only punishment? I would do it too!
