Iranian scientist and data leak
The UN examines information according to which leak of data from the IAEA on Iran's nuclear facilities and nuclear physicist Mustafa Ahmadi Roshan could lead to his death.
"There is a suspicion that the terrorists used the secret information, received from the UN depatments, including the sanctions list of the Security Council and the conversation from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) employees with our scientists to identify them (scientists') and commit atrocities against them", Deputy Permanent representative of Iran to the UN Eshag al-Habib said, Reuters reported on Friday.
Speaking in the Security Council, al-Habib said that shortly before his death, Ahmadi Roshan met with IAEA inspectors. According to al-Habib, "this fact indicates that the UN agencies could play certain role in the leak of information on Iran's nuclear facilities and scientist".
The Iranian representative accused the IAEA employees of non-compliance with proper secret regime during conducting inspections at Iran's nuclear facilities.
The representative of the UN Secretary General Martin Nesirki said that the organization was checking the information provided from Iran.
Iran's supreme religious leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei previously has blamed the U.S. CIA and Israeli intelligence "Mossad" for Roshan's death. U.S. has denied allegations of complicity in the murder of a scientist. Israel has declined to comment.
