Iran published “Confession on the death penalty one Akbari”. Latest UK headlines and events


Iranian state media released a video of Alireza Akbari, a British citizen of Iranian origin, who was sentenced to death on charges of espionage. In the released video, Akbari says Iran, which was assassinated in 2020, played a role in the assassination of the most senior nuclear scientist.

However, in an audio recording of Akbari’s speech, broadcast yesterday by the British BBC Persian Service, Akbari explains that he was tortured for months during his detention so that he could confess to the crime.

Akbari, who also briefly served as Iran’s deputy defense minister, was sentenced to death for the crime brought against him and for spying for Britain.

Although the UK has announced that Akbari’s death sentence was an unfair and political decision, it has yet to comment on the footage.

In a video released by Iranian state media, Akbari said: “The British wanted to be aware of important events. For example, a British agent asked me if the nuclear scientist Fakhrizadeh was involved in these projects, and I said: “Why not?”

Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was killed in a terrorist attack near Tehran in 2020. The scientist was considered by Western intelligence services to be the head of Iran’s secret nuclear program, the existence of which he did not recognize.

Iranian state media often publishes videos of confessions of people accused of political affairs.

However, in an audio recording released by the BBC, Akbari said: “I was interrogated and tortured for more than 3,500 hours in 10 months. “They threatened to kill me with a gun and asked me to come to terms with what I didn’t do,” she says.

Akbari is known to have been close to Ali Shamkhani, secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, when he served as deputy defense minister from 1997 to 2005.

In its latest statement regarding Akbari, the Iranian intelligence ministry said: “Akbari was one of the most important British intelligence agents in Iran and had access to extremely important points.” The ministry accused Akbari of passing classified information to British intelligence.
