Israel: ex-gov't minister on trial Thursday

(MENAFN) Israeli media reports said that the trial of Gonem Segev, a former Israeli government minister accused of spying for Iran, will begin Thursday in Jerusalem.

"Segev is accused of aiding the enemy [i.e., Iran] during a time of war [and] spying and transferring secret information to the enemy," Israeli daily Haaretz reported Wednesday.

The newspaper went on to assert that Segev was alleged to have provided Iranian intelligence officers with "dozens" of intelligence reports.

"Segev, the indictment claims, worked for the Iranian intelligence services from 2012 and met with his operators in a number of countries and allegedly knew the information [he was providing] was intended to help Iran and harm Israel," Haaretz wrote.
