The top official of the Iran consulate in the Philippines will leave it to Cebu police authorities to investigate Sunday’s bus crash in Balamban, Cebu that killed 21 persons and injured 30 others.

Iran Consul Mohammad Tavana, who arrived in Cebu late Sunday, has accepted that it was an accident, according to Dr. Potenciano Larrazabal Jr., owner of Cebu Doctors Hospital (CDH) where a number of the fatalities and the injured were working as medical residents.

Larrazabal, who met with Tavana Monday morning, said the consul’s primary concern was to ensure that the injured, 24 of whom are confined at CDH, would receive proper medical care and that the remains of the fatalities would be brought home to Iran as soon as possible.
