Australia has rejected to extradite an Iranian academic Reza Dehbashi Kivi to the United States after being detained for 13 months for allegedly exporting US-made military equipment to Iran. After the release from Australian prison, Dehbashi arrived in Tehran.

Australian Attorney General Christian Porter in a statement said that in this case, academy member Reza Dehbashi Kivi could not be extradited.

“My decision is made in accordance with the requirements of the Australian domestic legal process and in accordance with the powers granted to the Commonwealth Attorney General under our law”, Porter said.

The statement was made hours after Iran agreed to release the Australian couple from Tehran’s jail for allegedly spying.

On Saturday, Iranian media reported that Dehbashi Kivi had returned to Iran. Porter did not say whether the two cases were related.

According to ABC News Australia, Reza Dehbashi Kivi, 38, was arrested in September 2018 after being accused of sending stealth aircraft or missiles to Iran.

The US is trying to extradite the academics on six charges, including conspiring to export special amplifiers classified as defense articles under the US Firearms List, ABC News said.
