Iranian Bureau in The Hague Burglarized
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Robbers raided the office of the Iranian president’s international legal affairs department in The Hague, stealing more than 100,000 euros.
In a statement released on Saturday, the presidential department confirmed that its office in The Hague had been robbed, but denied reports that classified documents had been also stolen in the incident.
A section of the rented building of the department’s office in The Hague was robbed on May 16 in the morning, and more than 100,000 euros used for running the branch has been stolen, it added.
The intruder or intruders appear to have not found the time to finish the job, as some stuff and some of the stolen money have been left behind, the statement said.
It further dismissed reports that classified documents were stolen in the raid, saying the office’s archive, documents and computers have remained intact.
It came after some sources reported that all classified documents and secret files on Iran’s legal action against the US and West’s hostile measures were stolen in the raid.
