Deputy Majlis Speaker announced on Sunday that a special committee had been established in the parliament to look into the case.

"The Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee has discussed the issue and has established a committee in this regard," Mohammad Hassan Aboutorabi-Fard told the Persian service of the Mehr News Agency.

The committee was established after MP Ahmad Tavakkoli expressed his criticism of the fact that the judicial apparatus and the Foreign Ministry had maintained silence on the issue.

In a speech during an open session of the Majlis on Sunday, Tavakkoli said that the judicial apparatus and the Foreign Ministry should provide explanations about the incident.
