TEHRAN, January 9 (Itar-Tass) — US citizen of Iranian descent Amir Mirza Hekmati has been sentenced to death in Iran for espionage and cooperation with hostile (to the Islamic Republic) states, the Fars news agency reported on Monday.
“Amir Mirza Hekmati was sentenced to death ... for cooperating with the hostile country (the United States) and spying for the CIA,” Fars said, without giving a source. “The court found him Corrupt on Earth.”
The trial of the case lasted less than two weeks. According to Iranian sources, the 28-year-old Hekmati lived in Michigan. During the past few years he underwent special training, including at the American military base Bagram in Afghanistan. In mid-December Hekmati arrived in Iran from Dubai (UAE), having been instructed to infiltrate the Iranian security forces to spread misinformation and gather intelligence for the CIA and the Pentagon. Immediately after his arrest, he spoke in detail about the details of his secret mission.
According to Iranian law, espionage is considered a particularly serious crime and is punishable by death.
