According to reports, the Danish government has discovered a booklet in the embassy of Iranian regime in Copenhagen containing names of numerous Iranian dissidents in exile. The Iranian regime has classified these individuals as “terrorists,” reports indicate.
According to the Jyllands-Posten daily in Denmark, citing two former Danish intelligence agency chiefs, the booklet is considered a terror hit list prepared by the Iranian regime.
Denmark has recalled its ambassador from Tehran following these developments and summoned the Iranian regime’s ambassador in Copenhagen to provide explanations in this regard.
Danish officials are asking for an investigation on the Iranian regime’s terror hit list.
Danish political parties are calling for a probe into this issue to determine if the Iranian regime’s embassy in Copenhagen had any links to the possible assassination plots.
“I believe there are obvious reasons in this regard,” said Michael Aastrup Jensen, spokesperson of Denmark’s Liberal Party. “The only response now is that we must throw them out of our country because this is completely unacceptable.”
An individual assassinated in the Netherlands is seen in this list. Three other names on this list are exiled Iranians living in Denmark.
Denmark said recently that it suspected an Iranian regime intelligence agency had tried to carry out a plot aiming to assassinate an Iranian Arab dissident on its soil.
Denmark’s foreign minister said he believed the Iranian regime was behind the plot which prompted the Nordic country to call for a new round of wide sanctions by European Union against the Iranian regime.
A Norwegian citizen of Iranian background was arrested in Sweden on October 21 in connection with the plot. He was extradited to neighboring Denmark, according to Swedish security police.
“We are dealing with an Iranian intelligence agency planning an attack on Danish soil. Obviously, we can’t and won’t accept that,” Andersen told a news conference.
Iranian opposition President Maryam Rajavi sent a twitter message expressing her gratitude of the Danish government for standing firm in the face of the Iranian regime’s unbridled terrorism.
“European Union must immediately place the mullahs’ Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) on its terror list,” she wrote.
