Farzad Farhangian, the Iranian diplomat who defected from his post as the Islamic Republic's embassy press attache in Brussels, left Brussels for Norway, fearing for his safety and that of his family in Belgium. At the time, Jahanchahi obsessed with seeing his name and picture in the media, duped some media outlets that he had been behind the defection and had been funding Farhangian as well as advising him on immigration and security arrangements. One year after Jahanchahi's constant false claims in pretending that he is behind the defections, the defected diplomats issued an explicit statement that denied Jahanchahi's claims and that they have anything to do with the two man team known as the "Green Wave".
Last week, the Norwegian authorities deported Farhangian and his family back to Belgium, as part of the Dublin Convention. Basically the Dublin convention means if Farhangian applied for asylum in Belgium and Belgium is regarded as a safe country, his asylum should be decided by Belgium.
Jahanchahi however, enraged by the diplomats denouncing his claims, has published an article on his site claiming that Farhangian was deported from Norway because the Norwegian authorities had identified him as an IRI infiltrator! Jahanchahi also writes that all the defected diplomats who issued the statement against him have been expelled from the Green Embassy Campaign!!
The defection of the diplomats was a source of joy for the Iranian public, it was another sign that the Iranian regime was crumbling, but once again a dubious Iranian millionaire, who for the last three decades had not cared about any of the injustices taking place in Iran has tried to smear and tarnish the reputation of these former diplomats for his own obsessions of vanity.
The defected diplomats are men of integrity who gave up their position and all their privileges to stand by the people of Iran, despite all the consequences of hardship they faced as the result of their defection. Jahanchahi's attempts to tarnish them will get him nowhere other than expose him for what he is, a conceited self loving impostor who does not realise reputation and integrity are more important than money.
