Matthew Trevithick Is Being Released By Iran

Matthew Trevithick Is Being Released By Iran

A fifth American, Matthew Trevithick, is being released by Iran, U.S. officials said today.

Senior U.S. administration officials described Trevithick as a student who was recently detained in Iran.

His release is not part of a prison swap that freed four U.S. prisoners in exchange for seven Iranians held by the United States on sanctions charges, the officials confirmed. The prisoner swap came after more than a year of secret negotiations, the officials said.

In addition, the agreement calls for Iranian officials to “continue cooperating with the United States to determine the whereabouts of Robert Levinson,” a U.S. official said on background. Levinson is the former FBI agent and CIA contractor who went missing in Iran in 2007.

Iran has denied holding him.
