Saudi Arabia Links Spy Cell to Tehran

Iran Has Denied Any Links

Saudi Interior Ministry said on Tuesday that an alleged spy cell reportedly dismantled last week had “direct links” to Iran’s intelligence services.

“Preliminary investigations and physical evidence that has been collected as well as the defendants’ statements on this case have all revealed direct links between this cell and Iranian intelligence services,” a ministry spokesman said in a statement carried by the SPA, Saudi Arabia’s official news agency.

“These elements had regularly received sums of money in return for information and documents on important installations during the spy operation in the interest of these services,” the statement said. (The Gulf News, 27 March)

On 19 March, the interior ministry in Riyadh said authorities had arrested 18 people including an Iranian citizen on espionage charges. Iranian foreign ministry has denied any links to the suspected spy cell.

Iranian citizens have no links to the regime, I guess.

I'm sure that the bulk of the Iranian citizenry is going to be overjoyed to learn they don't.
