The United States has arrested some Iranian scientists to hinder scientific success of the Islamic Republic, says a commentator.

RNA - Iran’s Minister of Science, Research, and Technology Mansour Gholami said on Wednesday that the United States identified a number of Iranian professors and issued visas for them, but arrested them upon their arrival in the US’s soil.

Massoud Soleimani, a 49-year-old Iranian scientist left Iran on sabbatical last year, but was arrested upon arrival in Chicago and transferred to prison in Atlanta, Georgia for unspecified reasons.

In an interview with Press TV on Wednesday, Massoud Shadjareh, head of the Islamic Human Rights Commission, said that the US government is determined to pursue the policy of harassing Iranian scientists and intellectuals.

“They have created hellhole to abuse individuals and deny them justice and this seems part and parcel of a policy of targeting not just the scientists but in order to pull back the Iranian scientific achievements,” Shadjareh argued.
