One month ago today, Persian-language channel Manoto TV aired a groundbreaking exposé about the demolition of Tehran’s 15-story Plasco Building in January 2017, which killed 16 firefighters and at least five civilians. Manoto TV is estimated to be watched by at least 30 percent of households in Iran.
The half-hour segment from Manoto’s investigative news series Reportage highlights most of the key evidence covered in AE911Truth’s February 2017 report and also features an interview with one of the report’s co-authors, Ted Walter.
After working hard for the past four weeks to translate and subtitle the Persian-language show, we are pleased to finally release it.
Included in Manoto’s show are five corroborating reports — previously unknown to AE911Truth — of the Plasco fire having been extinguished prior to the collapse as well as three additional corroborating reports, also new to AE911Truth, of explosions immediately preceding the collapse.
One clip even shows fire department spokesman Jalal Maleki attributing the collapse directly to the explosions: “In the last moments, two or three explosions occurred in the upper floors and those were the main reason for the collapse.”
The show also features an anonymous official from the Tehran Fire Department who claims that no one from the department anticipated the building would come down. He also discloses that members of the department have been officially forbidden from discussing the Plasco incident online.
This episode of Reportage marks the first time that any media organization — other than the staunchly anti-government, reformist Amad News — has reported the truth about the demolition of the Plasco Building and the mass murder of nearly two-dozen people who were inside the building at the time of this heinous act.
