Twin British-Iranian nationwide Alireza Akbari has been executed in Iran, in line with state media.
Earlier this week, the household of Mr Akbari stated it had been requested to go to his jail for a “ultimate go to” and that he had been moved to solitary confinement, as Britain repeated its name for Tehran to not carry the execution.
“Iran should halt the execution of British-Iranian nationwide Alireza Akbari and instantly launch him,” the British overseas secretary, James Cleverly had tweeted this week.
However early on Saturday, state media reported it had executed Mr Akbari regardless of the worldwide outcry.
Mr Akbari, who as soon as served in Iran’s defence ministry, had been accused of spying, an allegation he denied.The Associociated Press stated that Iran’s Mizan information company, that’s related to the nation’s judiciary, stated he had been hanged.
