11 Years Prison for Former «Israeli» Minister Charged with Spying for Iran
“Israeli” former minister Gonen Segev, who was charged with spying for Iran, signed a plea bargain on Wednesday and will serve 11 years in prison.
Segev confessed and was convicted of espionage, aiding “Iran” in war time, as well as providing information to the enemy.
The defense team said “the plea bargain reflects the true proportion of this case.”
“The district attorney’s office wants to reveal more details about the affair, and once it’s out, it will be clear that Segev indeed had contacts with Iranians, but not to aid them. That is why the treason charge was removed from the amended indictment,” the defense team said.
Segev, the former “Israeli” energy and infrastructure minister, was charged with providing Tehran with information on “Israel's” energy industry, security sites in the country, different facilities and political and military officials, among other things.
