May 15, 2016

TEHRAN – Iran’s prosecutor general said he is pressing on with his call on the Foreign Ministry to take diplomatic action on the U.S. for its decision to seize the Central Bank of Iran’s assets in an American bank.

Mohammad Jafar Montazeri said he is pursuing the issue firmly, Nasim reported on Saturday.

Montazeri had also proposed setting up a juridical task force, made up of top Iranian judges, to take legal action, within the framework of international law, against the U.S. measure.
