A third hearing has been held for The Washington Post’s Tehran correspondent Jason Rezaian, who is facing espionage and security charges.
The in-camera session was held on Monday at Division 15 of Tehran Revolution Court.
The 39-year-old is facing charges of “espionage, collaboration with hostile governments, gathering classified information and disseminating propaganda against the Islamic Republic,” according to his lawyer Leila Ahsan.
Rezaian has been The Post’s correspondent in Tehran since 2012.
He was arrested together with his wife Yeganeh Salehi, an Iranian citizen, also a journalist, and a female press photographer. The other two were released on bail in October 2014.
