Iran hangs its former deputy defense minister Alireza Akbari, a duel British Iranian national accused of spying for UK #AlirezaAkbari #Iran #UK
"Iran has executed a former deputy defense minister accused of spying for the United Kingdom for multiple years.
The county’s Mizan news agency, run by its judiciary, reported on Saturday that Alireza Akbari was hanged after allegedly confessing to and being found guilty of corruption and action against Iran’s internal and external security through espionage. It did not provide details about when the execution occurred.
Much of the international community and human rights organizations have denounced Iran’s judicial system as being unfair, reporting it often arbitrarily detains people, forces confessions from accused prisoners and widely leans on the death penalty.
British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak said he is “appalled” by the execution of Akbari, who is a British Iranian citizen.
“This was a callous and cowardly act, carried out by a barbaric regime with no respect for the human rights of their own people,” he said. “My thoughts are with Alireza’s friends and family.”
U.K. Foreign Secretary James Cleverly called the execution a “barbaric act” and said it “will not stand unchallenged.”
