KUWAIT CONDEMNS THREE TO DEATH IN IRAN SPY RING
March 29, 2011: two Iranians and a Kuwaiti national, all serving in Kuwait's army, were sentenced to death for belonging to an Iranian spy ring, a judiciary source said. The defendants were accused of spying for neighbouring Iran and of passing on information on the Kuwaiti and US military to Iran. The men were arrested in May 2010.
The criminal court's verdict can be appealed up to the supreme court.
Iran has strongly rejected the charges of spying for its benefit, insisting the accusations were "absolutely false." (Sources: France24.com, 29/03/2011)
