Iran’s Intelligence Ministry foils an attempt at document theft by the BBC.
Iran’s Intelligence Ministry says it has thwarted attempts by the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) to steal Iran’s cultural, historical and art documents.
In line with efforts to make up for its failures, the Western media network has used its agents inside the country to pilfer historical documents from the country’s official archives, the ministry said on Sunday.
It added that the move, which was against media regulations and international law, has been monitored and nipped in the bud as a result of appropriate measures taken by the Iranian intelligence forces.
The ministry also noted that further information on the operation will be made public later.
