Kuwaiti MPs call for expulsion of Iran ambassador
4 May 2010
Following reports about the discovery of a network of “espionage” in Kuwait connected with Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Corps, a number of Kuwaiti Members of Parliament called for the expulsion of Islamic Republic’s ambassador in Kuwait.
French news agency AFP quoted Mohammd Hayef, Kuwaiti MP, as saying that all agreements with Iran must be suspended and Kuwait’s Ambassador in Tehran must be recalled. Reportedly Mohammad Hayef has condemned the silence of Kuwait’s government around this case. He has warned the government that if they do not take a stance in this regard, a number of MPs will call for a probe into the matter. Kuwaiti government has announced that the country’s security agencies are still involved in the said investigation but made no reference to Iran in the report. They have also announced that the published reports regarding this case are not accurate.
Al-Arabiah website quoted the Kuwaiti newspaper Al Qabas as saying that “seven members of the spy cell connected with Revolutionary Guards” have been identified and arrested by Kuwaiti security officers. The report contends that the network “took photos of sensitive Kuwaiti military headquarters as well as US military bases in Kuwait and provided the Guards with relevant information about these centres.”
Brigadier-General Ramazan Sharif, head of Revolutionary Guards public relations denied all these charges saying: “Claims regarding the discovery of a spy cell in Kuwait is part of a project that aims to demonize the Revolutionary Guards.”
