Press TV: Reuters warns trainer of Iranian “ninjas” against pursuing legal case

Tuesday, 17 July 2012

Iranian female ninjas have filed defamation charges against Reuters after the news agency accused them of being assassins. Reuters also faces a lawsuit from the Iranian government over the same report. According to Press TV, London officials and Tehran news agency personnel are trying intimidation and enticement tactics to prevent a court hearing - scheduled for late September - involving private plaintiffs. The Iranian ninjas say they are determined to take Reuters to court. Khatereh Jalilzadeh, a Ninja trainee, said, “The lady from Reuters asked me only one question, which had a very obvious answer. I believe that anyone anywhere in the world would defend his country if it were attacked, but she twisted our words to make us look bad and described us as assassins… We are taking legal action, because the ladies who train in Ninjutsu first and foremost enjoy it as a sport. It’s about working out and staying fit. Reuters has blatantly lied about us.”
