Report: Iran Sentences Dual-national Man to Prison

Sunday, 14 October 2018 11:38 AM

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran's judiciary spokesman is saying a court has sentenced a dual national man to eight and a half years in prison after finding him guilty of infiltration of important governmental bodies.

Sunday's report by the semi-official ISNA news agency quotes Gholamhossein Mohseni Ejehi as saying the suspect was tried based on a report by the intelligence department after he infiltrated "some sensitive centers." The report identified convict's surname as Tavakkoli and said he was also fined $48,000. It didn't include his other nationality, but added: "Usually these sorts of individuals are working for the U.S. and Israel."

Occasionally Iran detains dual-nationals over similar security charges.

In 2015, Iran detained a Lebanese engineer residing in the U.S. resident and later sentenced him to 10 years in prison on spying charges.
