Press Release   •   Jan 04, 2010 10:34 GMT

“The Government must look into these very serious allegations," said the Liberal Democrat Shadow Foreign Secretary.

Commenting on allegations that the five British men kidnapped in Iraq were taken in an operation led and masterminded by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, Edward Davey MP said:

“The Government must look into these very serious allegations when three British nationals have been killed and a fourth is suspected to have been.

“If the Iranian government was behind this hostage-taking, killing and alleged torture of British civilians, there are serious implications for already strained British-Iranian relations.”
