France Sacks Iran Intelligence Assets

In response to a June plot to attack an exiled Iranian opposition group’s rally outside Paris, the French government has seized assets that belong to Iran’s intelligence services.

Assets of two Iranian individuals Assadollah Asadi and Saeid Hashemi Moghadam were also frozen.

A few days ago an Iranian diplomat was arrested in Germany. The diplomat was suspected of involvement in a plot to bomb the meeting of the Paris-based National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).

An attempted attack in Villepinte was foiled on June 30. An incident of such gravity on our national territory could not go unpunished,” said a joint statement by the foreign, interior and economy ministries.

There has been no response from Tehran yet.
