Iran to put on trial five ‘spies’: prosecutor

-

AFP: Iran will soon put on trial five people accused of spying for “enemies” on the Islamic republic’s defence, aerospace and cyber programmes, Tehran prosecutor Abbas Jafari Dolatabadi said on Wednesday.

TEHRAN (AFP) — Iran will soon put on trial five people accused of spying for “enemies” on the Islamic republic’s defence, aerospace and cyber programmes, Tehran prosecutor Abbas Jafari Dolatabadi said on Wednesday.

The prosecutor pointed an accusing finger at the United States and warned officials against employing people who “may not be loyal and pass information to enemies,” state television’s website quoted him as saying.

Dolatabadi did not identify the five who appeared to be Iranian nor did he specify a date for the trial.

The group includes a 28-year-old who had been “working in aerospace field and passed a lot of information to the enemies” and another person “who gave very detailed information about defence issues to the enemy,” he said.

“A 33-year-old person who had links with foreign services and received lots of dollars to give very important information on the judiciary and cyber issues to them” is among those to be tried, the prosecutor added.

Earlier this month Intelligence Minister Heydar Moslehi said that authorities had arrested several “nuclear spies” who were working to derail Iran’s nuclear programme.

Moslehi’s remarks came against a backdrop of reports that the Stuxnet worm was mutating and wreaking havoc on computerised industrial equipment in Iran.
