Although Ian Milne, the official SIS Chief of Station, coordinates British intelligence activities Screen_Shot_2014-02-27_at_12.31.46_AM.pngfrom the British Embassy, the key figure for MI6 in Tehran is Robert Charles “Robin” Zaehner. Zaehner, a religious scholar with extensive counter-sabotage experience in northern Persia during the War, runs a personal network that extends from tribal chiefs in the now-Soviet north to shipping and banking magnates in Tehran. His famous opium and mescaline parties, at his house in the old city near the Golestan Palace, give him access to Tehran’s artistic and arcane set; Zaehner is also a scholar of mysticism and Oriental religions.
