Iran and Argentina Hadi Soleimanpour,

by Nathan Hamm on 9/15/2003

Iran and Argentina
Hadi Soleimanpour, wanted by Argentina in connection with a 1994 bombing of a Jewish community center in Buenos Aires, has been freed on bail.
The judge noted there was little hard evidence of his complicity in the
bombing (he wasn’t in Argentina at the time for example). There will be
an extradition hearing later this week. So, if they don’t have hard
evidence connecting Soleimanpour to the bombing, why does Argentina
want him so bad? (And why do they think they can get him?) Apparently
they want him for questioning.
In related news, Britain’s Teheran embassy has been shot up for the third time.
