Israeli ex-Gov Minister jailed for spying

Former Israeli cabinet minister Gonen Segev is to be jailed for 11 years after he admitted spying for Iran, Israel's justice ministry says.

Segev, who served as energy minister in the 1990s, was allegedly recruited while working as a doctor in Nigeria.

He was accused of leaking details about Israeli officials and security sites. Segev was detained in Equatorial Guinea in May and extradited to Israel.

He pleaded guilty to serious espionage as part of a deal with prosecutors. The 63-year-old will be formally sentenced at a hearing on 11 February.

There was no immediate comment from the Iranian authorities.

Ever since the Islamic Revolution in 1979, when religious hardliners came to power, Iran's leaders have called for Israel's elimination. Iran rejects Israel's right to exist, considering it an illegitimate occupier of Muslim land.

He seems like a really sad case. 

Good education in Israel.. became a doctor in Israel.... then was busted for smuggling drugs, and it all went downhill from there. :(

He must have had a decent hand.  If the prisons are the same over there as here, he'll be out in 5 maybe 6yrs max.  For Treason.

Maybe he went to a good school.

Or he had information to sell.  He's lucky to be alive.
