\u201cBased on the latest information I received from respected Judiciary officials, Mr [Robert] Levinson has no judicial or criminal case in any of the Islamic Republic of Iran's courts,\u201d Foreign Ministry Spokesman Seyyed Abbas Mousavi told a press conference on Sunday.\r\n\r\n\u201cWe speculate that the reports released on the issue are related to his disappearance. When they asked Iran to help find him, the Islamic Republic naturally opened a disappearance case as a humanitarian issue, as it does on any other people who go missing in Iran,\u201d he added.\r\n\r\n\u201cBut this case is not criminal or judicial, as some are trying to misrepresent. It's just the case of a person's disappearance.\u201d\r\n\r\nMousavi said based on the request submitted to Iran, the Islamic Republic is pursuing the issue with good will and for humanitarian grounds.\r\n\r\n\u201cWe have already announced a number of times that we don't have any information about this person's fate. But if we can do anything to shed light on his condition, wherever he is, we are ready to do so,\u201d he vowed.\r\n\r\n\u201cThat doesn't mean he has an open case in Iran. We deal with it just like other disappearance cases, and his name can be among the missing people, which we will do anything we can to find,\u201d Mousavi noted.\r\n\r\nNBC News on Saturday cited a filing to the UN's Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances as saying, \u201cAccording to the last statement of Tehran's Justice Department, Mr. Robert Alan Levinson has an ongoing case in the Public Prosecution and Revolutionary Court of Tehran.\u201d\r\n\r\nLevinson's family claimed Iran had told both the UN and their lawyer it has an open case "about our husband and father."\r\n\r\n"We welcome Iran\u2019s taking the first step to finally end this nightmare. Now it is time to send him home to us," the family said in a statement.\r\n\r\nUS President Donald Trump also reacted to the report on Sunday, urging Iran to \u201cturn over\u201d the missing FBI agent who disappeared during an unauthorized secret mission for the CIA in 2007.\r\n\r\nThe Trump administration offered a reward this month of up to $20 million for information about Robert Levinson's disappearance in Iran 12 years ago.\r\n\r\nTrump weighed in on Sunday tweeting, \u201cIf Iran is able to turn over to the US kidnapped former FBI Agent Robert A. Levinson, who has been missing in Iran for 12 years, it would be a very positive step.\u201d\r\n\r\nThe president did not elaborate but he seemed to link Levinson's case to Iran's nuclear program.\r\n\r\nTrump pulled the US last year unilaterally out of Iran's 2015 nuclear deal, which saw Tehran limit its enrichment of uranium in exchange for the lifting of economic sanctions.
