Former Israeli Minister Gonen Segev Sentenced To 11 Years In Iran Spying Case


A former Israeli minister-turned-spy for Iran was sentenced Tuesday to 11 years in prison as part of a plea bargain negotiated with prosecutors.

The sentence was handed down by the Jerusalem District Court, which had approved the deal that saw Gonen Segev convicted of serious espionage offenses and giving information to an enemy.

Segev was convicted of meeting with Iranian intelligence officials repeatedly over the past six years and supplying them with information. A more serious charge of assisting the enemy in wartime, listed in the original indictment, was removed as part of the plea deal.
