Iran Says Kuwaiti Verdict For Alleged Iranian Spies Unacceptable

Iran’s Foreign Ministry said life sentences issued by a court in Kuwait for Iranian nationals accused of spying are “baseless” and unacceptable.

“Baseless claims, which are surprising, have been made again,” ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said today in the Iranian capital, Tehran, according to the state-run Mehr news agency. “Such verdicts are in no way acceptable.”

Two Iranian men were sentenced yesterday to life in jail by an appeals court in Kuwait on charges of spying for the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps.

Kuwait hasn’t given the Iranian consulate access to the accused, said Mehmanparast, who did not identify them. The Iranian official said he hoped Kuwaiti officials will reconsider the verdict and release the men.
