Turks Cover Up Murder of Iranian Dissident
„Iranian agents holding diplomatic passports murdered a dissident in Istanbul in November 2019. However, the killing was hushed up so as not to embarrass Iran. It has many of the hallmarks of the murder of Saudi Arabian dissident and former insider Jamal Khashoggi who was murdered in 2018.
But a major difference is that while Turkish, Western and Qatari media put Khashoggi on the cover for weeks, the murder of Masoud Molavi Vardanjani was ignored.
A Reuters report revealed the murder of Vardanjani. He was warned by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps to stop speaking out against the regime and stop sharing any expertise he had with others.
