HEADLINE: IRANIAN EXILE '100% CERTAIN' ARAD IS ALIVE
An Iranian exile living in Los Angeles told Channel Two News last night that he was "100 percent certain" Ron Arad was alive and being held in Iran.
Meanwhile, Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee chairman Ori Orr said yesterday that Israel does not know exactly where Ron Arad is, "but we know that Iran has the key - and more than that - to finding and returning him."
Orr said there was nothing to reports in a German newspaper about a new tape and letters indicating Arad was alive, adding such information was irresponsible. "We believe the Germans did this because there are many complaints against them in the West, especially in the US, about their maintaining relations with the Iranians, so to justify this they said they are also helping the Israelis," Orr said.
