Iran Reportedly Holds Two Belgians As Brussels Plans Prisoner Swap
According to the official website of the Belgian Parliament, the Belgian government is on the cusp of finalizing a shameful agreement with the mullahs’ regime ruling Iran. Under the pretext of “Transfer of Sentenced Prisoners,” Brussels will return Assadollah Assadi, a career diplomat terrorist, to Tehran. Assadi was the mastermind of a failed bombing plot against a large Iranian Resistance event in France in 2018, attended by 100,000 people, including hundreds of lawmakers, current and former officials and dignitaries from five continents.
The notice of a hasty approval of a bill in the Belgian parliament is now posted on the parliament’s website and is expected to be put to vote in the Foreign Affairs Committee on Tuesday. According to the bill, convicted criminals from two countries can serve their sentences in their country of origin. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that Assadi, who received his orders from the highest authorities in Tehran, will not spend a single day in prison if he is returned to Iran.
A Court of Antwerp had sentenced Assadi to 20 years in prison, and his accomplices, Nasimeh Naami, Amir Saadouni, and Mehrdad Arefani to 18, 18, and 17 years in prison respectively, revoking their passports and Belgian citizenship.
The Iranian Resistance and Iranian expats strongly condemned this shameful deal, which will only encourage the regime to further increase its terrorist activities in Europe and ratchet up its policy of holding dual national hostages and using them as bargaining chips.
