BEIRUT - A dual national member of Iran's nuclear negotiating team has been jailed for five years for spying, news agency Tasnim said on Sunday, citing a spokesman for the judiciary.



Gholamhossein Mohseni Ejei named the convicted man as Abdolrasul Dori Esfahani, without identifying his second nationality.

According to Iranian media, he has Iranian and Canadian citizenship.



"He was one of the people accused of spying and passing intelligence to strangers and he was linked to two intelligence agencies," Mohseni Ejei said.



He said Dori Esfahani’s five-year sentence was upheld after a failed appeal, Tasnim reported. Dori Esfahani also faces charges of financial corruption, Mohseni Ejei said.
