Advisor refutes Imam Musa al-Sadr’s martyrdom

September 2, 2018

TEHRAN – Hossein Amir Abdollahian, a senior foreign policy advisor to the parliament speaker, said on Saturday that there are no reliable evidence that Imam Musa al-Sadr has been martyred.

“No reliable evidence of #Imam_Mousa_Sadr martydom is at hand. Expected influential figures in #Libya & #Lebanon decisively preordain Imam's fate and assign "active & special committee" to fulfill that vital issue,” Amir Abdollahian said in a tweet.

Sadr, a prominent Iranian-Lebanese Shia scholar, went missing with two companions on August 31, 1978, during an official visit to the Libyan capital Tripoli. He was accompanied by Sheikh Mohammad Yaqoub and journalist Abbas Badreddine.
