TEHRAN (Tasnim) – A dual citizen arrested by Iran’s Intelligence Ministry has been initially sentenced to ten years in prison on espionage charges, Iranian Judiciary’s Spokesman Gholam Hossein Mohseni Ejei said Sunday.
Speaking at a press conference in Tehran, Ejei said the individual had snooped into Iran to gather documents, and “was directly guided from the US.”
That person was identified and arrested by the Intelligence Ministry forces, and has been sentenced to ten years in jail, the spokesman noted, adding that the verdict can be appealed.
Ejei said he will provide more details once the Judiciary delivers a final verdict.
