Judges Reject Iranian Jews’ Appeal

February 7, 2001

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) _ Three judges rejected the appeal of 10 Iranian Jews convicted of spying for Israel, state-run Tehran radio reported Wednesday.

The public prosecutor’s office in Tehran said the judges who studied the appeal had decided against it. No reason was given.

The ruling means the Jews, who were convicted last year in the southern city of Shiraz, have no further appeal.
