Switzerland recalls diplomat from Iran
02/09/2009
Switzerland's Foreign Ministry said Monday that it recalled a Swiss diplomat from Teheran because of an alleged incident with his Iranian girlfriend. Foreign Ministry spokesman Jean Philippe Jutzi said the diplomat, who headed the Swiss Embassy's section for US interests, left Teheran last month after the "regretful incident." Jutzi declined to comment Monday on allegations by Iranian media that sexual relations with the woman led to the temporary arrest of the diplomat. Daily Jomhuri-e-Eslami reported Saturday the Swiss diplomat was arrested in north Teheran while doing "unlawful acts in a car." But according to Mehr news agency, Iranian police denied the detention.
