The 13 Iranian Jews jailed last year for spying for Israel and the United States should receive a public trial, Iran’s intelligence minister said. “The case has been submitted to the judiciary,” Ali Yunesi said in a newspaper interview. “If they are convicted and sentenced to death, then they will be executed, and if they are acquitted they will be released.” He did not say when the suspects would stand trial.
