HELSINKI (AP) — Iranian opposition members say another Iranian diplomat has defected in Europe — this time in Belgium.

The announcement comes just hours after the No. 2 man at the Iran mission in Helsinki said he would seek asylum in Finland.

The Europe-based Green Wave opposition movement said Farzad Farhangian, press attache at the Iranian Embassy in Brussels, walked out Friday and flew to Oslo.

In Norway, former Iranian consular official Mohammed Reza Heydari confirmed that Farhangian “left the embassy after informing the ambassador that he was leaving and he came here without anyone (else) knowing about this.”

Three diplomats in Europe are now known to have quit to protest of the Iranian government’s clampdown on dissent.
