ANKARA - Iran's judiciary has referred the cases of four detained Iranian dual-nationals to court, the Tasnim news agency quoted a senior judiciary official as saying on Monday.

Several Iranian dual nationals from the United Sates, Britain, Canada and France have been detained in the past few months and are being kept behind bars on various charges, including espionage or collaborating with a hostile government.

"After the issuance of indictments, the cases against (British-Iranian) Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, (American-Iranian) Siamak Namazi, (Canadian-Iranian) Homa Hoodfar and (U.S.-Lebanese) Nizar Zekka ... have been referred for processing to court," Tehran prosecutor Abbas Jafari Dolatabadi said.



He stopped short of saying whether the court was a Revolutionary Court, which handles security-related cases.
