FBI Agents Association Urges Trump Administration to Step Up Efforts to Gain Release of Former Agent Robert Levinson on 10th Anniversary of Disappearance
By Allan Lengel
The FBI Agents Association, which represents more than 13,000 active and former FBI agents, marked the 10th anniversary of former FBI Agent Robert Levinson’s disappearance on Thursday by calling for the Trump Administration and the international community to increase efforts to gain his release.
“It’s time to bring Bob home to his family,” said FBIAA President Tom O’Connor said in a statement. “FBIAA urges the Trump Administration and the international community to press Iran for information on his disappearance. We are encouraged by the recent statement by a White House National Security spokesperson that Bob’s case is a priority and that the U.S. will never cease in its efforts to bring Bob home. We ask anyone with knowledge of his whereabouts to come forward to help reunite Bob with his loved ones.”
Levinson is a retired FBI Agent who served 22 years with the FBI and six with the DEA. He traveled to Kish Island, Iran as a private investigator and has not been publicly seen or heard from since his disappearance on March 9, 2007.
“Our message to Bob and his family is that his former colleagues have not forgotten him,” said O’Connor. We continue to stand with the Levinson family. Bob has missed a decade of accomplishments and milestones in the lives of his children and his wife, Christine. We pledge to the Levinson family that we will not let the world forget Bob’s unjustified imprisonment and we will continue to work for his release.”
