|Norway expels Iranian students over sanctions||
TEHRAN – Academics from Norway’s top technical university have expressed concern after almost a dozen post-graduate science students from Iran had their residence permits cancelled because of international sanctions, BBC reported on Sunday.
According to the report, the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration in recent months has sent letters to a number of Iranian PhD students informing them that they must leave the country.
The letters say that Norway’s Police and Security Service has ruled that their studies could result in the transfer of sensitive technology which could help Iran develop its nuclear industry.
The security services say this would put Norway in breach of international sanctions in place against Iran over its nuclear program.
