Brian Hook, the US Special Representative for Iran, announced that
the issue of family members of senior Iranian officials residing in the United
States will be looked into.
In a video message released on the State Department Persian language website and social media, Hook said many Iranians have sent messages asking why the US does not deport or revoke the visas of the relatives of regime officials, Radio Farda reported.
“I have to admit that this is another example of the hypocrisy of the regime," Hook said, adding, “While regime officials chant ‘Death to America’, they send their families to the so called ‘Great Satan’ to live and study here, using the resources of the Iranian people.”
Hook went on to say, “I can tell you we are working on it,” adding, “We are pursuing all options to pressure the corrupt, hypocritical officials in your government to change their behavior.”
