France refuses Iranian prisoner swap offer فرانسه قاتل بختیار را با کلوتیلد رایس مبادله نمی کند Share

خبرگزاری هرانا - حقوق زندانیان: وزیر امور خارجۀ فرانسه برنارد کوشنر در یک کنفرانس خبری در پاریس گفت که دانشگاهی جوان فرانسوی، کلوتیلد رایس، روز چهارشنبه از سوی دستگاه قضایی ایران احضار و بازجویی شده است.

به گزارش راديو فرانسه، کلوتیلد رایس که از سوی مقامات ایرانی متهم به جاسوسی است و به همین دلیل ممنوع الخروج اعلام شده هم اکنون در سفارت فرانسه در تهران اقامت دارد و در هفده نوامبر گذشته نیز توسط دادگاه انقلاب تهران احضار و بازجویی شده بود.

رئیس جمهوری ایران جمعه گذشته به خبرگزاری فرانسه گفته بود که با آزادی کلوتیلد رایس موافق است، مشروط به اینکه رهبران فرانسه نیز در رفتار خود تجدید نظر کنند.

اگر چه محمود احمدی نژاد توضیح بیشتری در این باره نداده است، پیشتر غیرمستقیم خواستار معاوضه کلوتیلد رایس با یکی از قاتلان شاپور بختیار، علی وکیلی راد، شده بود که از سال ١٩٩٤ در فرانسه زندانی است.

در واکنش به این پیشنهاد، وزیر امور خارجۀ فرانسه، برنارد کوشنر، امروز دوشنبه بار دیگر گفت که پاریس حاضر به انجام چنین معامله ای نیست.

وزیر خارجۀ فرانسه اضافه کرد که محمود احمدی نژاد صریحاً خواستار چنین مبادله ای با دولت فرانسه شده است، ولی از نظر دولت پاریس چنین معامله ای غیرقابل اجرا است حتا اگر تمایلی به انجام آن وجود داشته باشد.

PARIS (AFP) — France refused Monday to release an Iranian agent jailed for the murder of a former prime minister in exchange for the freedom of a French academic charged with inciting street protests in Iran.

Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner insisted that Paris would not bow to what he said was pressure from President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to swap 24-year-old Clotilde Reiss's freedom for that of Iranian convict Ali Vakili Rad.

"What does he want? He wants to make us swap Clotilde Reiss for Vakili Rad, that's to say the assassin of Shapour Bakhtiar. It's out of the question," Kouchner said, at a breakfast for foreign journalists in Paris.

"Even if we wanted to, we couldn't," Kouchner said, citing France's laws about the independence of the judiciary, which sentenced Vakili Rad to life imprisonment in 1994, setting a minimum term of 18 years.

On Friday, Ahmadinejad said that he would like to allow Reiss to return to France, but that the decision would "depend on the French authorities". He did not specify what he wanted Paris to offer in exchange.

In September, France's President Nicolas Sarkozy angrily rejected the idea of swapping an "innocent young woman" for Bahktiar's killer, after Ahmadinejad had raised the issue of several Iranians in French jails.

In 1994, a French court found Vakili Rad guilty of murder after he admitted to carrying out the 1991 murder in the Paris suburbs of Bakhtiar, an Iranian exile who had served as prime minister under the former Shah of Iran.

Vakili Rad was arrested in Switzerland and extradited to France, where he told a court he had been sent by Iran's Islamic government to kill Bakhtiar, a target because he had worked under the ousted Shah's hated regime.

Reiss was arrested in the wake of the protests that followed Iran's disputed presidential election in June, shortly before she was due to fly home after a six-month study and teaching visit to the Iranian city of Isfahan.
