Iranian Facebook Fight: In Facebook Post Top Iranian Official Accuses Another Official’s Wife Of Spying
The head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps-affiliated Center for Electronic Resistance, Mohammad Hossein Rostami, dropped a bombshell Sunday on his Facebook account accusing Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif’s secret second wife of “spying for the West” and that he would reveal supporting documents to the effect that would “cause a political earthquake.” Rostami posted on his Facebook account,
“Afrin Jit Saaz, Zarif’s second wife, is a spy whose crimes were proven by the official authorities. Mr. Zarif, do you know that the movement of foreign influence in Iran has arrived at your bed? Official documents written by your colleagues reveal that your second wife, Afrin Saaz is spying for foreigners.”
Currently, the only official documentation for Iran’s FM Zarif regarding his wife is that of Maryam Imanieh as there are no known records existing regarding the alleged secret second wife.
Zarif’s rumored second spouse is said to be a former reporter for the state-owned Iran newspaper who was arrested together with three other journalists a few months ago by Iranian security forces for alleged espionage supporting the West. Her arrest came shortly after Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei announced the beginning of a campaign resistance to the clout of the United States and the West in Iran.
The Center of Electronic Resistance is a part of Iran’s Amariyun Strategic Center for Resistance to the War waged Against Iran, an institute established by the Revolutionary Guards after the mass protests that took place in 2009, following reports of an alleged fraud in that year’s presidential elections.
Rostami has not yet released any of the said secret documents, but has vowed to do so. If his revelations prove to be true, this will most certainly have some serious repercussions for Iran’s FM Zarif as well as provide fodder for the masses as the world engages in this Iranian internal drama on the highest level. If the allegations prove to be true, will this have any effect outside of Iran’s borders and if so, how? Sound off in the comments below!
