Israeli ex-minister ‘who spied for Iran’ lived in Nigeria

Segev, a former doctor whose medical license was revoked, was released from prison in 2007 and had been living in Africa in recent years.

He's accused of providing Iran with information on Israel's energy industry and security sites, as well as political and defense officials.

A former Israeli cabinet minister with a checkered history of attempted drug smuggling and credit-card fraud has been charged with spying for Iran.

Former Israeli minister and MK Gonen Segev has been arrested and charged for spying for Iran, the Israeli government has revealed.

Heat advisory issued for Cuyahoga County until 8 p.m.
The average monthly high temperature, at 68.4 degrees halfway through June, is already 1.4 degrees above normal for the month. The storm warning is expected to move towards Hartford and New Hartford by 7:50 p.m., the National Weather Service said.

"Segev received a secret communications system to encrypt messages between him and his operators", the Shin Bet said.

Israel and Iran are bitter enemies, and the allegations against Segev are extremely grave.

The 62-year-old allegedly remained an active agent at the time of his arrest and previously "visited Iran twice to meet with his handlers", Shin Bet said. In 2012, a connection was established between Segev and officials from the Iranian embassy in Nigeria.

Upon arriving in Israel, Segev was detained for investigation by the ISA and the Israel Police pursuant to information which indicated that Segev was in contact with elements in Iranian intelligence and was assisting them vis-à-vis their activity against the State of Israel. More recently, Israeli forces have carried out a number of airstrikes on Iranian forces in neighboring Syria.

"In order to perform the missions that he had been assigned by his handlers, Segev maintained contacts with Israeli citizens in the foreign affairs and security fields".

According to Channel 10, Segev was held in solitary confinement for nine days after he was brought to Israel last month, and was barred from contacting his attorneys during that time.

On June 15, at the end of the interrogation, the Jerusalem District Prosecutor's Office filed an indictment against Segev in the Jerusalem District Court for the above offenses, as well as for multiple offenses of handing over information to the enemy. All further information on the case remains under a court-imposed gag order.

"Even at this early stage it can be said that the permitted publication attributes extreme gravity to the events, even though within the indictment, of which the full details remain confidential, a different picture is painted", the statement read.
