Jahangir Shadanlou was named an agent of the MOIS by Yves Bonnet, former Director of the French Counterterrorism Agency (DST) in his book, "VEVAK: At the Service of the Ayatollahs."
Shadanlou founded an organization in Paris called "Supporting Iranian Refugees." But rather than give assistance to immigrants, it operated as "a recruiting center for new agents" and was a "trap for asylum seekers and the Iranian community in France through the exploitation of national sentiments," Bonnet said.
In 2007, Shadanlou was involved in an attack against Iranian dissidents prior to a meeting in Paris, in which several people were injured. Three MOIS agents were arrested and the meeting was cancelled.
