Head of police Brig. Gen. Esmail Ahmadi-Moqaddam said, “Arash Hejazi is wanted by Interpol and Iran’s Intelligence Ministry” in the murder of Neda, who’s shooting fueled what were daily opposition rallies in the capital city of Tehran, according to a Wednesday report by Iran’s Press TV, a state-run, English language network.
Speaking by phone to CBSNews.com Thursday morning from her office in Lyon, France, a spokesperson for Interpol flatly denied any involvement whatsoever in an investigation into Sultan’s death.
“We’ve not received any request for information or for assistance on the death of that lady,” spokesperson Rachel Billington said.
“We’ve received nothing from Iran,” she emphasized.
