TEHRAN — An Iranian judge accused of corruption and taking more than $500,000 in bribes has been arrested in Romania, Iran’s Judiciary spokesman Gholamhossein Esmaeili announced on Saturday.
Following the Judiciary’s legal measure, Gholamreza Mansouri was arrested in Romania and was handed to Interpol, Esmaeili said.
“Mr. Mansouri had announced that ‘I will return to Iran and attend the [court’s] session’, but after conducting investigations we realized that this announcement is not serious and is more like a show,” he stated, according to ISNA.
He explained that Mansouri cannot be transferred to Iran at the moment due to the coronavirus circumstances, but “this will happen in the following days.”
