Iranian Foreign Ministry spox: The longest serving U.S. prisoner “left Iran years ago for an unknown destination.”

Days after the family of Robert Alan Levinson concluded that the former FBI agent may have died in Iranian captivity, Tehran has come out with a bizarre statement claiming that he left the country “long ago.”

Levinson’s family announced on Wednesday that he died in Iran. “Our family will spend the rest of our lives without the most amazing man we have ever known, a new reality that is inconceivable to us,” the family said in a statement. “If not for the cruel, heartless actions of the Iranian regime, Robert Levinson would be alive and home with us today. It has been 13 years waiting for answers.”

Levinson, the longest serving U.S. prisoner in Iran, left “years ago for an unknown destination,” the Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Musavi declared on Thursday. The Iranian statement confirms Washington’s worst fears that the ex-FBI agent may have died in captivity. “It’s not looking great, but I won’t accept that he’s dead,” Trump said at a press briefing on the Wuhan coronavirus on Wednesday. “They haven’t told us that he’s dead, but a lot of people are thinking that that’s the case.”

Levinson, then 58, went missing after flying from Dubai to the Persian Gulf island of Kish as part of a private investigation in March 2007. The former FBI agent was looking into an alleged corruption case involving former Iranian President Akbar Rafsanjani, Reuters news agency reported.
