15 Shiites Setenced to Death in Saudi Arabia for spying for Iran
« on: December 07, 2016, 01:22:16 AM »

A Saudi court has sentenced 15 Shiites to death for spying for Iran in a trial criticized by rights groups. The sentences are likely to further strain ties between rivals Iran and Saudi Arabia.

Following what the rights group Amnesty International has called an unfair trial and travesty of justice, a court in Saudi Arabia sentenced 15 Shiite Muslims to death on Tuesday after finding them guilty of spying for regional rival Iran.

The special security and counterterrorism court issued the sentence as part of a ruling against 32 people, all Saudi nationals, except for an Iranian and an Afghan. In addition to the death sentences, another 15 Shiite Muslims were slapped with sentences of between six months and 25 years. The Afghan was one of two persons acquitted.  The convicted can appeal the decisions.

Prosecutors alleged that members of the Shiite minority had established a spy ring with Iranian intelligence in the Sunni kingdom, providing Iran with sensitive military information, engaging in economic sabotage, inciting sectarian strife and participating in anti-government protests.
