Diplomats to Pursue Mina Tragedy Case

Diplomats to Pursue Mina Tragedy Case

A Foreign Ministry delegation will visit France as part of legal efforts to restore the rights of Iranians who died in a tragic crush of pilgrims in Saudi Arabia’s Mina last year, a hajj official announced, describing France as playing the role of mediator.
Speaking on state TV on Monday, Saeed Ohadi, the head of Iran’s Hajj and Pilgrimage Organization, said the Foreign Ministry has been assigned the task of handling the Mina tragedy case through legal and political channels, adding that a legal committee has been formed to resolve the issue.
He noted that the Foreign Ministry’s Consular Department is going to release the results of its efforts to restore the rights of the Mina victims.
Ohadi once again took a swipe at the Saudis for lack of cooperation, saying the families of the victims or those injured in the crush have not yet received any compensation from Riyadh.
More than 460 Iranians were among the thousands of pilgrims who died on September 24, 2015, in the crush in Mina, near Mecca, during the hajj pilgrimage.
