Iran plans to sue makers of film Argo

    Iranian officials are planning to file a lawsuit against the makers of the Academy Award-winning film, Argo.

    According to the Iranian media, French lawyer Isabelle Coutant-Peyre, wife of Venezualan terrorist Ilich Ramirez Sanchez, plans to lodge a case in an international court arguing that Argo, directed by Ben Affleck, was an “unrealistic portrayal” of the country.

    On Monday, Ms Coutant-Peyre went to a conference in Tehran’s Palestine cinema called a “Hoax of Hollywood”.

    According to reports, at the conference, Argo was condemned as a “violation of international cultural norms” and the film’s Oscar labelled a “propaganda attack against our nation”.

    The conference’s general secretary, Mohammad Lesani, said: “Isabelle Coutant-Peyre is among the few international lawyers who accept cases which are somehow anti-Zionist,” according to news agency Mehr.

    “Argo is made by three film-producing companies in Hollywood [and] the Islamic Republic of Iran is going to sue all those who have been active in the anti-Iran domain, including directors and producers,” he said.

    Based on the 1979 hostage crisis, Argo tells the story of a CIA agent who helps six US hostages get out of Tehran
