Denmark Charges Iran of Scheming Activist Murder

Iran’s intelligence agencies have been charged with scheming to kill an Iranian activist on Danish soil. Denmark has requested its ambassador to return from Tehran and is discussing with other EU nations about implementing new sanctions against Iran. However, Iran has denied Denmark’s accusations.
Danish Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen portrayed the supposed planned killing by Iran of a deported separatist leader in Denmark as totally intolerable.
The Iranian ambassador to Copenhagen was called to the foreign ministry over the accusation. Even a Norwegian citizen of Iranian origin was arrested in Sweden for having links with the supposed plan.
Authorities carried out an extensive search on 28th September which that led to road being closed, trains and ferries being negated, and bridges being shut down across Denmark.
Danish intelligence chief Finn Borch Andersen certified that the steps were taken to avert the alleged scheming.
The supposed target was doubted to be a senior member of the Arab Struggle Movement for the Liberation of Ahvaz (ASMLA). Danish security services in a statement stated that the Norwegian suspect had been seen taking photo of the residence of the ASMLA leader.
Following a deadly shooting at a military parade in Iran in September, in which over 25 people were killed, Iran blamed Denmark, Britain, and the Netherlands of hosting members of militant opposition groups. However, the responsibility of the attack was taken by a diverse Arab separatist group and the Islamic State group, although there were no proofs of their claims.
Mr Rasmussen stated that after a meeting with his British counterpart Theresa May in Oslo, he acknowledged her support. In order to stand up against Iran, Denmark is in collusion with UK and other nations. Foreign Minister Anders Samuelsen briefed that Denmark would deliberate on further plans with European partners in the coming days.
