Tehran Prosecutor Abbas Jafari-Dolatabadi says Iran's Revolution Court has sentenced an individual convicted of spying for Israel to death. “This spy, whose identity will be announced after the verdict is approved, has been sentenced to death,” Jafari-Dolatabadi said on Sunday.
He added that other cases of espionage were being investigated by the prosecutor's office, Mehr News Agency reported.
In October, Iran arrested seven individuals, who had collaborated with Israeli intelligence services, on charges of espionage.
Iranian officials say one of the spies was involved in counterrevolutionary activities, and one was working on issues pertaining to the country's domestic affairs.
Five others were arrested for infiltrating the country's administrative institutions and passing classified data to foreign countries. (INA)
