A yet-to-be identified man who has dual Iranian-British citizenship has been slapped with a six-year jail term for spying for Britain.

The case became public after the judiciary’s Mizan news agency said Tehran prosecutor Abbas Jafari-Dolatabadi had “referred to a six-year prison sentence for an agent of England’s intelligence service”.

The news agency also quoted the prosecutor as saying the same British-Iranian citizen was also under investigation in a separate case related to a private bank.

No further details of the case were given, including when the person was arrested or where, in the case that appears not to have previously been disclosed.
