Tehran (ISNA) - Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Seyyed Abbas Mousavi has confirmed the reports on the death of Iranian judge Gholam-Reza Mansouri in Romania.

Mousavi told reporters that Iran is awaiting an official report on the cause of the incident, and requests Romanian officials to announce the exact cause of his death.

"He had recently visited the Iranian embassy and had consultations on the quality of his return to Iran," Mousavi said.

"He was later arrested by Romania's Interpol as he was wanted by the Iranian Judiciary through the International Criminal Police Organisation."

Accordingly, the spokesman added, Iran urges the officials and police of Romania to fulfil their legal duties and prepare an official report on the quality and exact cause of the incident.
