Spain frees Iranian Embassy employee

The Iranian ambassador to Madrid says Spain has released an employee of Irans Embassy who was detained on unfounded allegations of espionage.
Morteza Saffari said on Friday that the Iranian Embassy had worked for the release of Mr. Rezaeian, who was arrested by the police the previous night.

The Iranian envoy added that no other employee of the embassy had been arrested.

The Spanish Interior Ministry said police had arrested three men, including a staff member of the Iranian Embassy, in Madrid on suspicion of involvement in espionage.
Saffari stated that allegations of having links to a spying network leveled against the employee were unfounded and false.
Spains police pursue other objectives by creating such a fake scenario, Saffari added.

The information department of Irans Embassy also rejected the unrealistic accusations by the Spanish police, and said the police sought to exert pressure on the Islamic Republic.
