Prison Term for US Collaborator Upheld

An appeals court has upheld the prison sentence of a man charged with "collaborating with the hostile government" of the United States, a report on the judiciary's website was cited by AP. Mizan Online's Monday report quoted Tehran Prosecutor Abbas Jafari Dolatabadi as saying that an appeals court approved a two-year prison sentence for a man identified by his first name, Alireza. The report did not elaborate, but the term is relatively short compared to verdicts passed in previous similar cases, some involving up to 10 years of jail time. Rejecting a US call in July for the immediate release of US citizens and other detained foreigners, Iran in September upheld a 10-year jail term for an American citizen, two US-Iranian dual nationals and a Lebanese citizen on similar charges.
