Iran court sentences two spies to prison terms

Tehran, June 21, IRNA - A court in Kerman province has sentenced two suspects to prison terms ranging between five and 10 years on charges of spying for Britain and Israel.

Kerman prosecutor Yadollah Movahed said one of the suspects who was arrested last year for spying for MI6 was given a ten-year prison sentence.

He said the suspect “made 11 contacts with MI6 officers” in other countries to provide information to them, the English-language paper 'Iran Daily' said in its Upside/Downside column on Saturday.

Movahed added another person also was sentenced to a 5-year prison term for contacting intelligence officers at Israeli embassies in Turkey and Thailand.
