The Foreign Ministry said in a statement released on Sunday, “Rob MacAir was summoned for his unlawful conduct on Saturday in an illegal rally”. The ambassador was taken into temporary custody after the news of the ambassador’s temporary detention was revealed by Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Arghchi. He said, ‘He was not detained but arrested because of being an unknown foreigner while illegally assembled. When the police informed me that a person arrested claimed that he was the ambassador of the UK, I said it could not be possible. British Ambassador confirmed by tweeting.
He added, “I was surprised when I spoke to him on the phone and I confirmed that he was the ambassador. He was released 15 minutes later. The British ambassador tweeted, “I can confirm that I was not participating in any demonstration!” I went there to attend a rally organized for the victims of the PS 752 tragedy. ‘
