Ex-Israeli Minister Pleads Guilty of Spying for Iran

JERUSALEM Ė A former Israeli minister of energy and infrastructure plead guilty Wednesday to spying for the Islamic Republic of Iran during multiple meetings with Iranian officials in 2012.

Following an agreement with the Irsaeli Public Prosecutorís office, Gonen Segev, 63, who held office between 1992 and 1995, is set to begin an 11 year sentence.

According to the Israeli Internal Security Service, Shin Bet, Segev confessed to meeting with Iranian intelligence officials twice in Nigeria in 2012.

Segev was arrested in Equatorial Guinea in May 2018 and was handed over to Israeli authorities after an extradition order.

Upon arrival in Israel, Segev was interrogated and admitted to passing secret information to the Iranians.

In June 2018, the Israeli Public Prosecutorís Office concluded its investigation and filed formal accusations against the former politician, who had been imprisoned between 2005 and 2007 for attempting to smuggle 30,000 ecstasy pills from the Netherlands to Israel by forging a diplomatic passport.
