Iran Approves Death Sentence for ‘CIA Spy’
“Amir Rahimpour, who was the CIA spy and received huge money to give part of the information of Iran’s nuclear program to the intelligence service of America, had already been sentenced to death and it was recently approved by the country’s Supreme National court.”
Iran’s Judiciary spokesman Gholam Hossein Esmaili said Tuesday that the country’s Supreme Court has approved the death sentence of an Iranian who was spying for the United States, semi-official Fars news agency reported.
“Amir Rahimpour, who was the CIA spy and received huge money to give part of the information of Iran’s nuclear program to the intelligence service of America, had already been sentenced to death and it was recently approved by the country’s Supreme National court,” Esmaili was quoted as saying.
“He (Rahimpour) will be punished soon,” the spokesman said. He added that two others have been sentenced to 10 years in prison on charges of spying for the United States.
Tensions between the U.S. and Iran have been at an all-time high following the assassination of Quds Force commander Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad.
The U.S. assassination of Soleimani led to a fierce response from the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, as they fired more than 20 missiles towards two Iraqi bases hosting the U.S. forces.
At first, Washington denied any casualties from the attack; however, it was later revealed that dozens of military personnel suffered “brain injuries” as a result of the Iranian attack.
Iran’s response would lead to Washington imposing new sanctions against the Islamic Republic, a move that Tehran later condemned.
