Court in Iran is believed to have sentenced to death an Iranian doctor who is a resident of Sweden after convicting him of spying for Israel.
Tehran’s prosecutor said a person had been found guilty of passing to Israeli operatives the addresses of 30 nuclear and military scientists – two of whom were killed in bomb attacks in 2010.
Tehran prosecutor Abbas Jafari-Dowlatabadi told a meeting of judiciary officials on Tuesday that an unnamed “convict” had “given the address and particulars of 30 important people engaged in research, military and nuclear projects” to the Mossad spy agency, Iranian media reported.
Amnesty said Mr Djalali, a doctor and lecturer at Stockholm’s Karolinska Institute, was on a business trip to Iran in April 2016 when he was arrested by intelligence ministry officials and held without access to a lawyer for seven months, three of which were in solitary confinement.
Djalali says that while in solitary confinement he was twice forced to make “confessions” in front of a video camera by reading out statements written by his interrogators.
