Iran: Two employees of a charity prison imprisoned for spying for US intelligence

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — Two prison employees have been sentenced to prison terms for spying for the CIA, a spokesman for Iran’s judiciary said on Tuesday.

“Two CIA spies who were working under the guise of an organization and charitable organization were monitored and tried, and they were sentenced to ten years in prison for espionage and five years for work against national security,” spokesman Ghulam Hussain Ismaili added.

Ismaili said in a press conference carried live on the Judicial Authority’s website that the names of the accused will not be revealed because the verdicts issued against them are not final.
