Iran’s Judiciary has announced that it has sentenced to death an agent of Israel’s intelligence agency, Mossad.
Tehran prosecutor Abbas Jafari Dolatabadi said that based on the ruling issued by the court, the agent has been given a death sentence for relaying information to Mossad.
“The agent had relayed information about some 30 significant Iranian figures to the Israeli service,” the judiciary’s news website Mizan Online quoted him as saying.
He said the 30 Iranians were involved in research, military and nuclear projects, including two nuclear scientists Majid Shahriari and Masoud Ali Mohammadi who were martyred in bomb attacks in 2010.
Dolatabadi went on saying that the agent, who claimed to have a guilty conscience about the martyrdom of the Iranian scientists, has held numerous meetings with more than eight members of the Israeli spy agency providing them with information related to the activity of Iranian military sites, the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) and many other secret information in return for money and obtaining residency in Sweden.
Four Iranian nuclear scientists were assassinated between 2010 and 2012. Iran says those involved in the killings had been supported by the Israeli intelligence agency Mossad.
