Never forget, this bastard cut the throats of Iranian borderguards (Vazife soldiers)
Such an Arab bestiality method at Irans borders should be enough to want to tear him up from limb to limb.

All done with Saudi money and Black Water (Ze) trainig.

The photos apparently show Rigi was a passenger in a small corporate-type jet. Was this the jet the one flying over Iran airspace when it was forced to land, reportedly in Bandar Abbas?

In the picture, Rigi is wearing a sleeping blind on his forehead. Does this mean that he was sleeping when the plane landed in Badar Abbas and was cut by surprise when arrested, or could the Iran agents have used it to blindfold him after the arrest?

What is your source that Riggi was in a US base in Afghanistan? the photo reproduced here shows him outside a trailer. Why do you believe it was located on a US base?

The Iranians said he was in possession of an Afghan passport at the time of his arrest, as you have noted. But the document you have reproduced in your update is a Pakistani nation ID card, not an Afghan passport. Please check on this.

You have also reproduced a document issued by UAE, showing his nationality as Pakistani, I believe.

In any case, an amazing operation pulled off by Iran intelligence

For a change, the regime's security forces seem to have done something useful instead of the usual beating up of people in the streets and torturing dissidents to extract "confessions" out of them for televized show trials.

Nader, that coorporate jet is a Falcon 20 VIP jet operated by the IRIAF. I believe that this jet was used to transport Rigi from wherever he was intercepted and caught.

It wasn't the actual jet he was traveling in, as I believe it would have been a commerical jet.

The timing in relation to the Mahmoud al-Mabhouh assassination and the common Dubai connection seems interesting.
