Four of the 13 Iranian Jews accused of spying for Israel retracted their “confessions” in court, according to an American advocate. Malcolm Hoenlein, executive vice chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, said the four told the Iranian judge that their “confessions” had been made under duress. A Muslim accused of collaborating with the 13 also denied the charges.
