Washington, Oct. 29 – Authorities in the United States froze on Saturday the bank account of the office of Iran’s state broadcasting corporation in New York on terrorism charges.

The account of the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB)’s New York office was suspended after authorities determined that the organisation was an official organ of the Iranian government.

In a written order to Chase Bank in New York, authorities said that Iran was a state sponsor of terrorism and seeking weapons of mass destruction, and they demanded that its assets be completely and indefinitely frozen.

In the past, IRIB correspondents in a number of countries have been detained on suspicion of spying for Tehran while working under the pretext of news production. Iraq recently arrested IRIB’s chief correspondent in Baghdad on espionage charges.
