WorldLegal docs tie Quincy Institute’s expert to spy operation

Washington (Times Of Ocean)- Iranian-American businessman alleged to have organized probes against UAE monarch critics.

New court documents reveal that a pro-Iran pundit at the Koch- and Soros-backed Quincy Institute was more involved than previously known in an international private spy operation targeting critics of an Arab State sheikh.

“In a U.K. affidavit filed last month, a British private eye said the Quincy fellow and onetime foreign agent Amir Handjani, along with a lawyer for Ras al Khaimah (RAK), a small United Emirates Kingdom, “instructed” him to investigate who was funding a Jordanian businessman’s lawsuit accusing the RAK of detaining and torturing him at a black site prison. The private eye said he later enlisted an Israeli hacker to handle the case. The affidavit does not specify who was specifically targeted in the investigation.”

Handjani has spoken publicly in favor of the Iran nuclear deal from his perch at several prominent D.C.-based think tanks, including the Atlantic Council and the Truman National Security Project.

Handjani did not respond to a request for comment.
