Tehran, Iran, Nov. 29 – A group of Iranian Majlis (Parliament) deputies are launching a probe into the conduct of the Canadian embassy in Tehran, accusing its staff of spying on the government.

The lawmakers have charged that the embassy has been “acting against the national security of the Islamic Republic of Iran” and has effectively “replaced the embassy of the United States in Iran”.

They are seeking the closure of the mission.

The state-run daily Etemaad quoted on Wednesday Majlis deputy Javad Arianmanesh as saying that lawmakers would move to close down the embassy if it was determined that the Canadian mission was spying.

Intelligence Minister Gholam-Hossein Mohseni-Ezhei will soon be summoned to explain the “espionage activities of the Canadian embassy in Tehran”.

Earlier this month, Canada sponsored a resolution, adopted by the UN General Assembly’s Third Committee, accusing Tehran of torturing its political opponents.
