Tehran (ISNA) – "Amir Rahimpour, a CIA spy who was trying to pass on Iran's nuclear information to US, is sentenced to death," Iran's Judiciary spokesman, Gholamhossein Esmaili said on Tuesday.

"US's feud against Iran has different examples, such as eight years of imposed war (between Iran and Iraq). Utilizing spies to hurt Iran was another hostile move by US which was thwarted by the security and intelligence departments," the official said.

"Our intelligence surveillance has led to arrestment, trial and punishment of US and Israel's spies," he added.

"Amir Rahimpour who was a CIA spy and got huge pay and tried to present part of Iran's nuclear information to the American service had been tried and sentenced to death and recently the Supreme Court upheld his sentence and you will see it carried out soon," Esmaili said.

According to the official, two other people pretending to work for a charity were sentenced to 10 and five years in prison for spying and for acting against national security respectively but their sentences are not yet finalized.

He also mentioned that these spies are Iranian nationals.
