Iran summons Austrian ambassador over Ahmadinejad murder charges 6.7.2005

 


TEHRAN, July 5 (AFP) - 18h34 - Iran summoned the Austrian ambassador to the foreign ministry Tuesday in protest at charges its president-elect Mahmood Ahmadinejad was involved in the 1989 murder of an Iranian Kurdish leader in Vienna.

"These accusations are ridiculous and unfounded, and for this reason we have summoned the Austrian ambassador to the foreign ministry to ask him for an explanation," foreign ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Assefi told AFP.

"We categorically deny these accusations which are part of a scenario made up by Zionist circles unhappy with the high turnout of Iranians" in last month's presidential elections, he said.

"In international norms, it is not acceptable for anyone to make unjust accusations and to drag the courts behind him," he said.

Austrian legal authorities said earlier Tuesday that they wanted to interview an Iranian journalist living in France who claims to have evidence that Ahmadinejad was involved in the assassination of Abdul Rahman Ghassemlou.

"If the witness is ready to come to Austria, the Austrian security services will listen to him," a spokesman for the Austrian public prosecutor's office, Ernst Kloiber, told AFP.

The Austrian Green party's spokesman on security, Peter Pilz, revealed Saturday that the Austrian government had obtained documents implicating Ahmadinejad in the assassination.

This was later confirmed by the Austrian interior ministry which said the documents had been passed on to the public prosecutor's office.
