TEHRAN, Nov. 30 (MNA) – According to an official at Tarbiat Modares University in Tehran, the case of an Iranian university professor who has been jailed by the US authorities is incomplete after a year due to lack of evidence and has been sent to court for the final verdict.

Mohammad Hassan Nosrati, the Director of Public Relations at Tarbiat Modares University said, “Given the ongoing follow-up of the Ministry of Science, Research and Technology and Ministry of Health and Medical Education, we look forward to receiving the American Judicial System’s decision regarding the Iranian scientist case.”

He was arrested by the FBI upon his arrival in the US on unclear charges. The trial of hematology and stem cell researcher has been postponed twice over the past eight months while his innocence has been proven by his lawyers.
