Swedish National Jailed in Iran for Crimes: Spokesman

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The spokesperson for the Iranian Judiciary said a Swedish citizen has been imprisoned in Iran for committing crimes.

Speaking at a press conference on Tuesday, Masoud Setayeshi said the Swedish national has faced charges of committing crimes in Iran.

He noted that a preliminary inquiry has been made about the charges and the Swedish citizen has been sent to prison after legal prosecution.

It appears that the investigations are being finalized and the case will come to the court in coming days, the spokesman added.

Setayeshi stated that the Iranian Judiciary is absolutely serious when it comes to the security of the Iranian citizens and acts fairly, carefully, and mightily against anybody disrupting the security of the Iranian people.

Sweden and the European Union Commission said last week that a Swedish national was being detained in Iran. Sweden said Johan Floderus was detained in April 2022 for what his family said was alleged spying.
