It accused him of receiving 1,805,000 euros, 265,000 pounds and $50,000 for espionage.

In an audio recording broadcast by BBC Persian on Wednesday, Akbari said he confessed to crimes he did not commit after extensive torture.

Iranian state media aired a video on Thursday in which he said Akbari played a role in the 2020 assassination of Iran’s top nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, who was killed in a 2020 attack outside Tehran, for which officials at the time charged him with murder. Israel was blamed.

In the video, Akbari did not confess to involvement in the assassination, but said that a British agent had asked for information about Fakhrizadeh.

Iran’s state media often broadcasts alleged statements by suspects in politically charged cases.
