There is no information on the exact date or location of the execution of Reza Asgari.
While being questioned about the case of Mahmoud Mousavi-Majd, a political prisoner on death-row, Gholamhossein Esmaili, elaborated: “Last week, we carried out a similar sentence against a retired Ministry of Defence aerospace employee. He retired in 2016 and later connected to the CIA, and sold the information he had on our missile production to the CIA and received money from it. He was arrested and tried and sentenced to death and was executed last week. He was Reza Asgari. They should know, that’s intelligence dominance. Asgari was monitored and documents were collected ad finally, his sentence was carried out.”
