Iran Says Foreigners Including Top British Diplomat Were Arrested For Spying (Video)

File image.

The Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) detained several foreigners, including the UK’s second most senior envoy in Tehran, for alleged acts of spying, Iran’s state TV announced on July 6.

The UK’s deputy ambassador Giles Whitaker and several other foreign nationals were detained after being caught taking soil samples in restricted areas.

“These spies were taking earth samples in Iran’s central desert where the Revolutionary Guards’ aerospace missile exercises were conducted,” state TV said.

The foreigners were reportedly arrested in the in the Shahdad desert in southeastern Kerman province. The state TV did not elaborate on when they were arrested or clarify if any of them is still under arrest.

“Whitaker was expelled from the city after apologizing (the authorities),” the TV report said.

The state TV aired drone footage of Giles Whitaker and his family in central Iran where the British diplomat appeared to be taking soil samples.

One of those detained was identified by state TV as the husband of Austria’s cultural attaché in Iran. Austrian officials have not commented on the issue yet. The TV also showed a picture of a third foreigner, identified as Maciej Walczak, a university professor in Poland, whom it said was visiting Iran as a tourist.

From its side UK denied the Iranian allegations. A spokesperson for the country’s Foreign Office said: “Reports of the arrest of a British diplomat in Iran are completely false”. British ambassador to Tehran Simon Shercliff also denied the allegations.

“These reports that our Deputy Ambassador is currently detained are very interesting… He actually left Iran last December, at the end of his posting,” the ambassador wrote on Twitter.

The Iranian announcement came amid a stall in the talks with the US on the revival of the 2015 nuclear deal. After a recent round of talks in Qatar, the US accused Iran of maximizing its demands. This was later denied by Tehran.

Its a waste to bring this. Iran is a bad country also have world record in executing people with no proof as well.

We should not be tere at all.

We should leave the ones, which dont want to be sober members of the rest of the world out. Any contect there should be replaced by a single videcamera.

The model for this is Russia too.

You are Jew hasbara troll and I have noticed that you only post anti-Russia and anti-Iran posts and don’t have a clue about Denmark as you claim to be a Danish pastry, literally old chap.

TomB.

they are thieves, robbers, liars, cheats and deceivers. it’s in their Khazarian genes.

jens holm

Very impressing. Most of them must be more the 1000 years old. They must have very good make up artists.

Its so funny reading something like that.

EpsteinWozMurdered

You still talking shit. STFU idiot

jens holm

I have done that since Iran threw ballistics on danish soldiers asked in to help the Bagdad Goverment.

We are not in war. But for me, we are now.

ou not even know what Hasbare trolls are and Jewisme and its influence at all. It is true I never liked Russians and never has trusted them all the way to west of Berlin. I have seen how poor and non develloped things are there.

So i also wotk har to make my own country as well as EU and the rest of the world less independent of fossils. You do forget fossils are not only in Russia.

Denmark invented windpower. We will help India with that and other things they need very much.

I hope it will reduce Your kind of smog too and make a cleaner air by that.

The British bastards have special animosity towards Russians and Persians, was they stood up to the imperialists and both are revolutionary nations of bravery, integrity and independence. Russia and Iran are natural allies and great powers.

jens holm

I heard Russians carpet bombed Ukraine and the carpets was from Iran.

EpsteinWozMurdered

The reality is that the free is wise to the Anglo-Zionist modus operandi of “regime change” by using diplomats aka terrorists. The NATO and Zionist scum are now focused on destabilizing the ex-Soviet Stans and the Persian Gulf region. They will fail as miserably as they have in Kievan-Rus. This is the good guys century. Russia, China and Iran along with expanding BRICS and SCO are the future.

jens holm

Joke again. Ha ha. Those stans and iran for that matter was destabilized and collpased by the Russians and some mad religious ones.

They dont need Our help for that. I anything they need us for stabilisation.

We also make no bad propaganda. They do it better themself and for free. Spo we just refer and copycat.

Sigh STFU idiot

Still cheaper than stealing Iraqi and Syria oil.

They and we pay market price in Iraq. Everybody does.

Syria is more complicated. before the uprises the Assads stole all oil and gas as prvate owners.

EpsteinWozMurdered

Talking shit again Jen STFU idiot.

Even spoons and parabulators can be jailed for years or executed in Iran.

Our friend Dr. Walczak might not be able to install a light bulb, but I’m sure he can take a mean soil sample! That’s why he “just decided” to have his holiday in the middle of the Iranian desert…

Edgar Zetar

Hahaha they were youtubers and influencers taking soil samples as holy sand and pictures to share on Social Media… hahaha Spies of today have changed tactics but they are easy discovered when dealing with profesional security agencies.

Typical response from spy agencies is to deny anything when they have been caught red-handed. Deny everything is their motto.
