Photos of tanks, missiles and even some flags with slogans in Farsi against Israel were found on the cell phone of the Iranian pilot Gholamreza Ghasemi, accused in the case in which it is investigated whether he has links with companies or organizations that the United States catalogs as terrorists, informed sources with access to the investigation.

The finding occurred days ago, but was leaked in the last few hours and includes photos of the pilot when he was young, characterized as a member of the Iranian Al Quds Revolutionary Guard, as Télam was able to reconstruct.

The information from Ghasemi’s cell phone was extracted by experts from the cybercrime area of ​​the Buenos Aires Police and was later delivered to the federal judge of Lomas de Zamora, Federico Villena, and to the Department of the Antiterrorist Investigation Unit (DUIA) of the Argentine Federal Police (PFA). , according to the sources consulted.

The finding was reported this afternoon through a publication in the newspaper Página/12 and must be analyzed by Judge Villena and prosecutor Cecilia Incardona.

The prosecutor’s office yesterday had charged the Iranian pilot identified by the FBI, while requiring an investigation of the entire crew that arrived on the Venezuelan plane that landed in Argentina on June 6.

In the opinion that she signed yesterday, the prosecutor highlighted the need to continue the investigation regarding Gholamreza Ghasemi, the entire crew that depended on him, the aircraft and its cargo, under the suspicion that the Emtrasur flight – which brought auto parts – could have been used to hide another unspeakable target.

Investigators believe that the arrival of the Emtrasur plane with a crew made up of 14 Venezuelan citizens and 5 Iranians could have actually been “an act of preparation to provide goods or money that could be used for a terrorist activity, its financing or organization.” , as Télam was able to know.

Among the “irregular” elements detected by the prosecution in the first part of the investigation appears a difference in the crew that boarded the flight in Mexico and the one that entered Argentina; in addition to the fact that in the raid on the plane, a flight plan was found from last April in the name of Qushm Fars Air when the aircraft supposedly already belonged to the Venezuelan Emtrasur.
