ElBaradei: Allegations of hidden evidence ‘totally baseless’

According to Mehr News Agency (Semi-official news website):

Mohamed ElBaradei, Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency dismissed the allegations that he hid key evidence on Iran’s alleged weaponization studies and called them “politically motivated and totally baseless”, AFP reported. “I am dismayed by the allegations of some member states, which have been fed to the media, that information has been withheld from the board,” Mohamed ElBaradei told the IAEA 35-member board of governors. “These allegations are politically motivated and totally baseless. Such attempts to influence the work of the secretariat and undermine its independence and objectivity are in violation … of the IAEA statute and should cease forthwith,” AFP quoted from ElBaradei.
