Qasem Salehi Fargani

One of the people used by the Intelligence Ministry in Iran to meet with the journalists and foreign visitors, acting as a former member of the People’s Mojahedin was Qasem Salehi. He was a veteran agent of the Intelligence Ministry who was sent into the ranks of the Resistance with a specific mission of assassination. He entered the Iraqi soil through the Qasr-e Shirin border region with the help of the Intelligence Ministry in January 1998.

On June 13, 1999, he shot and killed from behind Mahmoud Agah, a member of the Mojahedin in an Abadan bus terminal. He wounded two other members of the Mojahedin and several innocent passengers and then went to the Intelligence Department. In subsequent investigations it was revealed that in 1992 he had committed a murder and in order to evade an execution sentence he was recruited by the Intelligence Ministry and was used as a professional killer.
