Tehran-Beirut Committee to Follow up Imam Moussa Sadr's Fate

Speaking in a meeting with Hamdan in Tehran on Monday, Iranian lawmaker Mohammad-Ebrahim Nekounam expressed satisfaction with Iran-Lebanon ties and said, “The path the two countries have already taken on fighting Zionist regime is right and irrevocable.”

Pointing to the fate of Imam Sadr, the Iranian MP said the IRI Parliament (Majlis) has been seriously following the missing religious leader's fate. "We have compiled all related documents and evidences about Imam Moussa Sadr in a book," Nekounam who heads Article 90 Commission in the parliament told Hamdan.

Hamdan referred to the recent developments in the region and said, “These kinds of Islamic uprisings are not shocking because collapse is the ultimate fate of all brutal dictators.”

Mohammad Hassan Aboutorabi-Fard, another Iranian Parliament member who met with the Lebanese official said the pursuit of Imam Moussa al-Sadr’s fate is the concern of the two countries.

“We hope the grounds will be prepared after collapse of Gadhafi's regime for release and return of Imam Moussa al-Sadr as an outstanding figure in the Shiite world."

In another meeting with Hamdan, Chairman of Iran's Majlis Commission on National Security and Foreign Policy Alaeddin Boroujerdi told Hamdan on Sunday that all concerned sides should adopt necessary measures to clarify the fate of Sadr after the fugitive Libyan ruler Muammar Gaddafi.


The family of Imam Sadr issued a statement last week , calling for efforts to be made to help obtain his release from the Libyan prison.

Lebanese Hezbollah has also said Libya is first and foremost responsible for Sadr’s disappearance.

Sadr, the founder of the Amal Movement, went missing during an official visit to Tripoli in August 1978.

It is widely believed that the popular and highly revered Lebanese Shia cleric of Iranian descent was kidnapped on the orders of senior Libyan officials.

Accompanied by two of his companions, Mohammed Yaqoub and Abbas Badreddin, the top Shia cleric was scheduled to meet with Libyan officials.

In 2008, the Beirut government issued an arrest warrant for Gaddafi over Sadr's disappearance.
