Iran International TV channel applies more security measures around its London offices
(MENAFN) The Iran International TV channel on Friday made a statement that more security measures have been applied around its London offices after warnings from the government in Tehran.
Concrete barriers have been created similar to those at main administration buildings and tourist spots in the British capital, to stop vehicle invasions.
The barriers were “guaranteed to stop a 7.5-ton truck at 50 miles (80 kilometers) per hour,” a spokesman for the Persian-language channel made an announcement.
Vehicle access in and around the site would also be controlled and checks started, he also said.
The warnings were an escalation of years of pressure due to its broadcasting of demonstrations in Iran, the spokesman informed AFP.
“We’re the only channel running 24/7 coverage of the protests,” he added.
He continued: “We’re not the voice of the protests. We’re the only means that people in Iran can see them.”
