Nervous, hasty reactions indicate UK malice towards Iranians

TEHRAN, Jan. 18 (MNA) – Referring to the UK’s reactions to the execution of Alireza Akbari, the Iranian Judiciary spokesperson said that the UK’s nervous and hasty reactions are another sign of the malice of this government to the Iranians.

Masoud Setayeshi made the remarks in his presser, saying that Iran expected at least an official apology from the UK government but the reactions showed that Iran’s hatred of this government is based on the realities.

The British government has never sought to repair the bitter and ominous history of its behavior towards the Iranian nation, Setayeshi criticized.

Saying that the country has been always hostile to the noble nation of Iran, he added that the UK's role in most sabotages against the Iranians is visible.

Supporting the Pahlavi regime and the Zionist regime, training spies, assassinating Iranian scientists, and creating seditions are some parts of the British government’s malice and animosity toward the Iranian nation, according to Setayeshi.

Akbari, 61, was arrested in 2019 after he returned to Tehran from London, where he has relatives. Akbari had engaged with British spies and received cash and other benefits from MI6, including a British passport, €1.8mn, £265,000, and $50,000.

The ex-official Akbari was executed on Saturday. Iran’s judiciary sentenced him to death on charges of spying for UK MI6.

The trial of Akbari was held in the presence of his lawyer and the death sentence was issued based on “substantiated evidence".
