Trial over, verdict within weeks
A spokesman for Iran’s judiciary system said Tuesday that Roxana’s trial has taken place. On Monday, the day the trial began, Roxana presented her last defense statement and while the trial proceedings seem to have ceased the verdict is expected in the next few weeks, The New York Times reported.
Reuters article notes an espionage case last year that involved an Iranian businessman accused of spying for Israel.
Gerald F. Seib, Washington bureau chief for The Wall Street Journal, wrote a piece Tuesday asserting that Iran is sending clear political signals by charging and trying Roxana. In 1987, reporting on the Iran-Iraq war, Seib was arrested by Iranian authorities and detained in Evin prison.
