Iran has sentenced a man convicted of spying for Britain to 10 years in prison and gave another a five-year jail term for allegedly collaborating with Israel, AFP said. Iran’s official news agency, IRNA, announced this after Britain said on Tuesday plans to reopen its embassy in Tehran, ending a three-year diplomatic freeze. The British “spy” was giving “advice and collaborating with Britain in order to optimize the effects of sanctions,” IRNA said, quoting Yadollah Movahed, the prosecutor of the southern Kerman province, where both men were arrested. The other unnamed “spy” was reportedly convicted of giving “information” to Israeli embassies in Thailand and Turkey.
