Clinton urges Iran to release info on missing Ex-FBI agent Robert Levinson

The Iranian government must release information about missing former Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agent Robert Levinson who disappeared in Iran more than nine years ago, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said at a rally on Friday in Coral Springs, Florida.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — In March, the White House marked the ninth anniversary of Levinson’s disappearance during a trip to Kish Island, Iran, stating Iranian assistance in finding Levinson was agreed to as part of a prisoner exchange reached between the two countries in January.

“He [Levinson] disappeared in Iran more than nine years ago, and it is long past time for the Iranian regime to provide us information about his whereabouts and let him return home to his family,” Clinton stated on Friday.

The White House also said in January that it had reason to believe Levinson was no longer in Iran, but hoped to get as much information as possible about his whereabouts.
