Ex-diplomat in Court

September 19, 2003

A former Iranian diplomat accused of masterminding a terrorist plot which killed 85 people and injured 100 others, has appeared in court in London.

The Argentinian government is asking for the extradition of Hade Soleimanpour, to face charges he helped organise a car bombing in Buenos Aires in 1994.

The career diplomat was Iran's ambassador to Argentina at the time of the attack.

He appeared at Bow Street Magistrates Court where the details of his bail arrangements were confirmed and the date of his next appearance set for October 23.

Soleimanpour, wearing a brown suit jacket, black trousers and a beige T-shirt, ran a gauntlet of abuse as he arrived.

Protesters from the National Council of Resistance of Iran chanted "terrorist, terrorist, terrorist," and "one less terrorist out of UK" amid tight security ahead of the short 15-minute hearing.

Soleimanpour left in a waiting taxi to more screams of abuse from demonstrators.

Soleimanpour, 47, who is currently studying for a PhD in nature-based tourism at Durham University, has denied any involvement in the attack.

He was released from custody last week after a hearing at the High Court in London which granted bail for 730,000.

Argentina claims Tehran ordered and financed the July 18 bombing, but that Soleimanpour had chosen to spend much of his time since the attack in countries from which he could not be extradited.

His arrest has threatened to trigger a diplomatic row with Tehran, which has called for him to be released and for the British Government to apologise.
