Retired FBI agent Robert A. Levinson is presumed to be dead by his family and the White House Officials on Wednesday. Robert who was disappeared in 2007 from Iran was on an unauthorized mission in Iran for the CIA.

“We recently received information from U.S. officials that have led both them and us to conclude that our wonderful husband and father died while in Iranian custody. We don’t know when or how he died, only that it was prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.” his family announced in a post on the group “Help Bob Levinson”.

Robert’s family blamed the “cruel, heartless actions of the Iranian regime” for his death and shows the pain that they have no idea whether they’ll receive his body or not.

A spokesman Alireza Miryousefi who works for Iran’s mission to the United Nations said in a recent tweet, “Iran has always maintained that its officials have no knowledge of Mr. Levinson’s whereabouts and that he is not in Iranian custody. Those facts have not changed.”

 

National Investigation Adviser Robert O’Brien, issues a statement on Wednesday evening revealing that the investigation is still going on, but the U.S, believes Levinson “may have passed away some time ago.”

President Donald Trump also expressed his certainty on Levinson’s death that “It’s not looking great, but I won’t accept that he’s dead.”
