Search for Sadr on right track

Karimi Qoddousi said the efforts of the subcommittee have led to “satisfactory results.”

He added that the subcommittee is receiving “credible intelligence” about Sadr's condition from detainees in Libya.

Sadr, the founder of Lebanon's Amal Movement, was a popular and highly revered Lebanese Shia cleric of Iranian descent, who was kidnapped while on an official visit to Libya on August 31, 1978.

Sadr was scheduled to meet with officials from the government of the former Libyan ruler, Muammar Gaddafi along with two of his companions, Mohammed Yaqoub and Abbas Badreddin.

It is widely believed in Lebanon that the Shia cleric was kidnapped upon the order of Libyan officials. In 2008, the Lebanese government issued an arrest warrant for Gaddafi over Sadr's disappearance.

Iran's Majlis has been stepping up diplomatic efforts to clarify the fate of the kidnapped Shia cleric following the fall of Gaddafi.
