According to Nakhilat report, Cha’ab, who was arrested by Iranian security forces some two and a half years ago, made the confession during a court hearing in the Iranian capital of Tehran.
He is responsible for a terrorist attack in Ahvaz, Khuzestan Province, southwestern Iran, on September 22, 2018.
Speaking during the session, prosecutor’s representative said that Sweden has turned into a safe haven for the elements of terrorist groups like, Pejak, Harakat al-Nazal and MKO.
He added that Farajollah Cha’ab is a Swedish citizen and has been receiving support from the Swedish government while he has had a red warning and has been under prosecution of international organizations.
The prosecutor’s representative noted that Farajollah Cha’ab was arrested in Poland in 2019 where he had gone to attend a conference of terrorist groups, but the Swedish government stepped in and the US administration also began to lobby so that he was taken back to Sweden with a special flight to continue with his terrorist activities.
Judge Iman Afshari asked the defendant whether he admits to be a Swedish national and had been receiving support from that country’s government and intelligence officials.
Farajollah Cha’ab said that he is a resident and national of Sweden and that the Swedish government provides support for him.
“They gave me a device so I could press its button when I felt danger, and it would alert the Swedish government security agents, and they would rescue me wherever I was,” he said
