Azerbaijan, Baku Aug. 27 / Trend, N. Umid /
Iranian conservative MP Ali Motahari announced that former Intelligence Minister, Heydar Moslehi did not keep his word on investigation of surveillance equipment discovered in the MPs` offices scandal, the Islamic Consultative Assembly news agency (ICANA) reported.
Moslehi promised that those behind the issue will be identified as soon as possible, he said, adding that to date no information about those persons has been released.
Motahari added that he is pursuing the issue, the report said.
It should be recalled that Iranian MP Ali Motahari who is a critic of ex-President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said in mid-July that he had discovered eavesdropping devices installed in his office.
He said in a statement that surveillance equipment was accidentally discovered in the air conditioning ductwork, and his own video surveillance shows that nine intruders entered the premises at night.
Motahari requested that the Intelligence Ministry explains the installation of the devices which he said violated Iranian law, while some other parliament members criticised him for publicising the issue.
"Since ordinary people can't do such things, there is no doubt that an organisation has carried out such a shocking act," another Iranian conservative MP Ahmad Tavakoli said adding that it would be a shame if it turns out that the country's intelligence and national security organisations were behind the move.
