IRAN: Court ruling aside, intelligence chief insists Saberi was a spy
"After carrying out expert studies on such cases, the Intelligence Ministry announces its views to the judiciary. However, after conducting its own studies, the latter may not accept the former's views...."
"In fact, the judiciary had acknowledged the Intelligence Ministry's view and ruled that this person should be imprisoned. The fact that such a ruling was issued shows that she was guilty.... Based on what has been said, the charges of espionage against that person have been confirmed. However, for some reason, the judge overseeing the case has ruled that her prison term should be suspended for five years."
