Few of you have missed that an Iranian man with Norwegian citizenship has been arrested by the Swedish Security Police in Gothenburg, Sweden. He is suspected of collaborating with the Islamic regime in Iran’s intelligence ministry and planned murder of Iranian opponents of the Islamic regime living in Denmark.
I was interviewed by the Swedish newspaper “Sydsvenskan” which wrote the following:
According to Ardavan Khoshnood, criminologist at Malmö University, Sweden can become a target for similar acts.
“There is a large Iranian society in Sweden where some of them are active opponents of the Islamic regime in Iran and constitute a clear threat to the regime,” he says.
On the 1st of November, I published an article in the Swedish newspaper “Svenska Dagbladet” among others writing:
A man has been arrested in Gothenburg suspected of preparing for murder of exiled Iranians in Denmark. The most important question is whether the detainee can be linked to any of Iran’s embassies in Denmark, Norway or Sweden. Iran’s actions in Sweden need to be mapped and thoroughly analyzed.
