Statement Of Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara On The Sentencing Of Manssor Arbabsiar For Conspiring With Iranian Military Officials To Assassinate The Saudi Arabian Ambassador To The United States

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Thursday, May 30, 2013

“Manssor Arbabsiar was an enemy among us – the key conduit for, and facilitator of, a nefarious international plot concocted by members of the Iranian military to assassinate the Saudi Ambassador to the United States and as many innocent bystanders as necessary to get the job done. And but for the vigilance of our FBI and DEA partners, his plot, and the unspeakable harm it would have caused, may well have come to fruition, which is exactly why our commitment to using every resource we have to root out, prosecute and punish people like Arbabsiar, who act as emissaries for our enemies, remains unflagging.”
