TEHRAN, June 21 (Xinhua) -- Iran's Foreign Ministry on Sunday summoned the Romanian ambassador to Tehran over the recent death of an Iranian fugitive judge in Bucharest, official IRNA news agency reported.

Iranian foreign ministry's representative urged immediate action by the Romanian authorities to clarify the cause of death of the Iranian judge identified as Gholamreza Mansouri.

The Romanian envoy, for his part, said that he will provide the results of the measures taken by the authorities of his country in this regard.

The Iranian foreign ministry on Friday confirmed the death of the judge in Romania.

The Iranian judge apparently fell out of a window in the Duke Hotel in Bucharest on Friday.

On June 13, Iranian Judiciary spokesman Gholam Hossein Esmaeili announced that the judge, accused of receiving 500,000 euros (about 559,000 U.S. dollars) in bribes, had been arrested in Romania. Enditem
