TEHRAN, Oct 14 (ICANA) – Head of Iran's Majlis (parliament) National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi says the Islamic Republic is actively pursuing the fate of Lebanon's senior Shia cleric Imam Moussa Sadr, who went missing in Libya over three decades ago.

Boroujerdi told reporters in the western city of Khorramabad on Thursday that Majlis is seriously following the matter, Mehr news agency reported.

He added that Javad Karimi Qoddousi, a member of the National Security and Foreign Policy Committee in the Majlis, heads a parliamentary sub-committee investigating Sadr's case.

In late August, Qoddousi said that Majlis planned to send a delegation to Libya to probe the fate of Sadr.

The Iranian legislator said that the investigation would be carried out in cooperation with the Lebanese Hezbollah and the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq, adding that Majlis is stepping up diplomatic efforts to clarify the fate of the kidnapped Shia cleric following the fall of fugitive Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi.

Imam Moussa Sadr was abducted in August 1978 during an official visit to the Libyan capital Tripoli to meet with officials from the government of Gaddafi.

He was accompanied by two of his companions, Mohammed Yaqoub and Abbas Badreddin.

The Lebanese Shia cleric of Iranian descent is widely believed to have been abducted on the orders of former Libyan officials. 

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