MKO’s information was not valuable. Mojahedin- by trying to collect information through phone calls and analyzing commutes- wanted to claim that Iran’s trying to produce Nukes.
Iran's Intelligence Minister Ali Yunesi said that Tehran has detained at least 10 people on charges of passing secret information on its nuclear program to the Israeli and the U.S. intelligence agencies.
He said Mojahedin-e khalq have not passed any valuable information to Americans, because they have not access to such information at all.
Yunesi said: “MKO’s information was not valuable. It was part of common knowledge and Mojahedin claimed that Iran’s trying to produce nuclear weapons.”
Yunesi, referring to MKO’s efforts to collect information by calling people, said: “when calling, Mojahedin use a special tone and introduce themselves as senior officials to get information.”
He added: “although Americans knew that MKO’s information is phony, asked them to announce it in public to pave the way for the US to formally pressurize iran.”
Americans reflected their information through Mojahedin because they didn’t want their original informant to be identified. The information Americans wanted was that of their professional spies but they didn’t think we will identify them. Mojahedin and even their main spies had no valuable information because our works were protected. It was not against NPT, but it was against Americans,” Iranian intelligence minister said.
