Iran arrests person who filmed plane downing video

Tehran, Jan 15, 2020 –

Iran said it has arrested the person who filmed the footage showing a Ukrainian passenger plane being shot down by a missile.

It is believed the person being detained will face charges related to national security, the BBC reported on Tuesday.

Flight PS752 was brought down after it took off from Tehran on Wednesday, killing all 176 people on board.

Iran has said it was shot down by accident and announced the arrest of several people over the incident.

President Hassan Rouhani said his country’s investigation would be overseen by a “special court”.

“This will not be a regular and usual case. The whole world will be watching this court,” he said in a speech.

Rouhani also stressed that the “tragic event” should not be blamed on one individual.

“It’s not only the person who pulled the trigger, but also others who are responsible,” he said.

Iran initially denied that the aircraft was hit by a missile, but later conceded that the passenger jet was hit by its air defence systems.

When the video was shared on social media, it led analysts to say it showed the plane was hit by a missile.

Iranian media reported that Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards had taken a person who posted a video last week of the missile striking the plane into custody.

But an Iranian journalist based in London who initially posted the footage has insisted that his source is safe, and that the Iranian authorities have arrested the wrong person.

Earlier on Tuesday, Iranian judiciary spokesman Gholamhossein Esmaili said that several people had been detained over the downing of the plane.

He added that about 30 people had been arrested for “taking part in illegal gatherings” – an apparent reference to recent anti-government protests.  (Agency)
