Iran Regime’s Business of Hostage Taking


Iran Focus

London, 22 October – The Iranian Regime is still seeking billions of dollars from the United States in exchange for the release of new US hostages imprisoned in Iran.

Earlier this year, the US paid $1.7 billion in cash to ensure that Iran would release of several hostages.

Since then, Iran has kidnapped further US citizens in order to extort more money and is holding them in Evin prison, where prisoners are routinely tortured and abused.

Fox News estimates that further payments could be up $2 billion, while the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) said that Iran expects “many billions of dollars to release” those U.S. citizens still being detained”.

Two of those abducted were American businessman Siamak Namazi and his father Baquer.
