Under a plea bargain with prosecutors, ex-Israeli energy minister Gonen Segev accused of spying for Iran has agreed to plead guilty to reduced charges against him and serve a prison term of over a decade.
According to Press TV, in exchange, the ministry added, prosecutors would drop charges of aiding the enemy and sentence the former minister to 11 years in prison.
The Jerusalem al-Quds District Attorney’s Office said that a sentencing hearing for Segev would take place on February 11.
