Iran hangs member of Mujahedin and man convicted of spying for the Mossad

Iran has executed a member of the Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) terrorist group and a man convicted of spying for Israeli intelligence service, Mossad.
Ali Saremi, a member of the MKO terrorist group, had been found guilty of charges of being a Mohareb (an enemy of God) and spreading propaganda against the Islamic establishment. He was hanged in the Iranian capital, Tehran, on Tuesday, IRNA quoted the Tehran Prosecutor's Office as saying. He was arrested in 2007 on charges of engaging in activities and taking part in events and establishments against the Islamic Revolution, as well as dispatching reports to the terrorist cell. Agents had also seized a number of CD's, films, photos and hand-written documents of the terrorist group from Saremi's house.

Ali Akbar Siyadat was also executed in Tehran on the same day after he was sentenced to death for working as a spy for Israeli intelligence agency since 2004. He had received 60,000 dollars to transfer classified information to the Israeli regime. Siyadat was arrested in 2008 while trying to leave Iran along with his wife.
The spy had confessed to his links with foreigners while trying to conduct trade activities before establishing contacts with one Israeli embassy overseas.
He also acknowledged his role in passing information about an Iranian military base to enemies. He had received a laptop computer and other equipment from his handlers three years ago to carry out his spying activities. Siyadat had admitted to meeting Israeli intelligence agents in public places such as hotels in Turkey, Thailand and the Netherlands. He also acknowledged receiving 3,000-7,000 dollars for submitting information about the number of Iranian operational planes, daily training and operational flights from different bases, the number of air accidents and their causes, as well as system information on different aircraft and missiles belonging to the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC).
