Iran denounces RNW Farsi website

5th February 2011, Comments 0 comments

Iran’s Mashrek news agency has accused Radio Netherlands Worldwide’s via the internet, twitter and facebook.

Iranian internet sites have also been critical of a recent RNW press release, connecting it to the execution in Tehran of Dutch-Iranian woman Zahra Bahrami. Her case has led to the worsening of diplomatic relations between the Netherlands and Iran.

Rik Rensen, RNW’s editor-in-chief, says there is no basis to the criticism voiced by the Mashrek news agency. He says RNW is completely independent and works according to internationally accepted standards of journalism.
