PST stopped an Iranian intelligence agent in the garden of a Norwegian man who is central to a pro-Israeli organization in Norway, TV 2 reports.
The man, who is speaking anonymously for the sake of his family, tells the channel that almost four years ago he was called by the Police Security Service (PST) where they told them they had to talk to him.
“Not until a few months later did I hear that Iran had been looking for me,” says the family father.
According to TV 2, the Iranian intelligence agent from the so-called Quads force, part of the Revolutionary Guard’s special branch operating in secret operations, landed at Gardermoen in April 2016.
The PST scouted the agent until he was inside the yard of the Norwegian. Then the intelligence service came forward and stopped the agent, the channel writes.
“I can confirm what the man is saying, is true. PST has a good dialogue with the person and the family to ensure their safety. We took preventive measures against the potential threat who left the country immediately. Beyond that, I do not want to go into detail on the matter,” PST communications director Trond Hugubakken told TV 2.
