The reason is not clear.
Manzarpour was one of the close staff members of VOA Persian Service to the director Setareh Derakhshesh. VOA management (BBG) had already received countless complaints in regard of Mazarpour's and Derakhshesh's unprofessional behavior at work.
Before joining the VOA Persian Service, Mohammad Manzarpour was a producer at BBC Persian Service at its Washington bureau. His cooperation with BBC was stopped in 2013 in a suspicious atmosphere as well.
Voice of America has not given any comment on Manzarpour fire.
