The document which is a 128 page “Operational Target Analysis” written by South African intelligence reveals the names, addresses, phone numbers and cover stories used by dozens of alleged Iranian operatives in South Africa.

The detailed document even goes on to name gardeners and drivers at Irans embassy, and the well planned and organized network of individuals , businesses and cultural groups which it says are being used by the Iranian regime to pursue its interests and expand its influence.

A separate South African intelligence document tells the story of how Iranian officials carried out a “clean up” of several diplomats at the Iranian embassy whose loyalty to the regime and its President Mahmoud Ahamdinejad was questioned. The officials in charge of the said “clean up” planned to send this diplomat home but could not because of his political contacts. Al-Jazeera also stated that the intelligence profile also revealed that Iran approached South African leaders in search for a workaround for the international sanctions imposed on it by the Western Powers. They cited a covert source who claims that on two separate occasions the then president Thabo Mbeki had met with senior Iranian officials requesting for their help with the nuclear program. Within a month of the initial meeting in September 2005 an Iranian delegation headed by a Mr Rouhani likely to be the current Iranian President Hassan Rouhani who had stepped down as head of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council in August of that year had met Mbeki according to the “covert source”.

Al-Jazeera added that the nature of the discussions that took place between the leadership of South Africa and the delegation was a request by the Iranian regime to the South African government to assist them with their nuclear program and to provide them with technical advice and technology to further their advances. “The advanced level of South Africa’s technologies in the aerospace industry especially in the missile guidance field has increasingly become a focal point of Iran”, a South African spy commented. “It is foreseen that these industries will be targeted for procurement processes”

South African intelligence also gave reports that the Iranian regime was also interested in the technology used for satellite interception and online surveillance and hacking. They were said to have sought tools for cracking encryption codes and protecting their own secrets online. Another document stated that British agents had been monitoring and trying to police the trade restrictions implemented on Iran in which they had a big role to play from the start.

Intel from the South African agencies also revealed that both the Iranian ministries of Intelligence and the Revolutionary Committees make use of the diplomatic bag to send arms to Iranian embassies abroad and these are stored in the Embassy with full knowledge of the Ambassadors. They then train these cells to strike an identified target which the South Africans say are usually American or Israeli.
