Iran Ex-Diplomat Who Quit Over Protests Gains Asylum

Feb. 18 (Bloomberg) — Former Iranian diplomat Mohammad- Reza Heydari, who resigned over Iran’s treatment of post- election protesters, has been granted asylum in Norway.

“The Norwegian authorities have notified my lawyer about their decision,” Heydari said today in a telephone interview from Oslo, where he was the consul at the Iranian Embassy until he quit on Dec. 24. Norway’s Foreign Ministry later confirmed that Heydari was given asylum there, according to a spokesman who declined to be identified in line with government policy.
