TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran’s judiciary says a court has sentenced an alleged agent for Israel’s Mossad intelligence agency to death.
Tuesday’s report on the judiciary’s news website Mizanonline.ir quotes Tehran prosecutor Abbas Jafari Dolatabadi as saying that the suspect had relayed information about some 30 significant Iranian figures to Mossad during meetings with more than eight members of the Israeli agency at various occasions.
He said the 30 Iranians were involved in research, military and nuclear projects, including two who were killed in bomb attacks in 2010, nuclear engineer Majid Shahriari and physicist Masoud Ali Mohammadi.
The report says the suspect provided information in return for money and obtaining residency in Sweden. It did not elaborate.
