Ex-Israeli minister charged with spying for Iran

Israel’s former energy minister has been indicted on charges of spying for archenemy Iran. Israel’s internal security agency says Gonen Segev was approached by Iranian intelligence in 2012 while living in Nigeria. He allegedly supplied information about Israeli power plants and security organizations.

Segev was energy minister for 18 months in the mid-1990s.

He is also accused of misrepresenting Iranian intelligence agents as businessmen and introducing them to people connected to Israel’s security and defense sectors.

Segev is thought to have visited Iran twice after using an encrypted communication system to contact his Iranian handlers.

Investigators have not disclosed whether he has admitted to the charges.

After Segev left the political world, he was convicted of smuggling drugs. Last month, he was refused entry into the African nation of Guinea and extradited to Israel.

The indictment has shocked many Israelis, who consider Iran an archenemy.
