Families of Iran’s murdered nuclear scientists sue Israel, US and Britain

Judiciary asked to pursue complaint through international bodies in attempt to bring killers of five scientists to justice

The families of murdered Iranian nuclear scientists have filed a lawsuit against Israel, the US and the UK, accusing them of involvement in assassination.

Rahim Ahmadi Roshan, whose son, Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, a chemistry expert and director of the Natanz uranium enrichment facility, was killed in a bomb attack in January, told a press conference in Tehran that the families had asked Iran’s judiciary to pursue their complaint through international bodies and bring those behind the killings to justice.

“We’ve filed an indictment against the Zionist regime and the arrogant powers,” Roshan said. The judiciary “is to pursue this case with the relevant international bodies”, he added.

Iran’s state television broadcast purported confessions this month by 14 suspects in connection with the killing of five nuclear scientists since 2010. The channel showed pictures from a military barracks which it said was a training camp outside Tel Aviv in Israel where the suspects took courses, including on how to place magnetic bombs on cars – the method used in the killing of the scientists.

The suspects also acknowledged in the purported confessions that they received training in Israel.

    Shame also on the Iranians who implemented the assassinations (after obtaining training in Israel).
