TEHRAN - Iran hopes to issue a verdict in the case of three Americans accused of espionage in late July, state television quoted a judiciary official as saying on Tuesday.

Josh Fattal, Shane Bauer and Sarah Shourd were arrested by Iranian forces on July 31, 2009, on suspicion of spying after crossing into Iran from Iraq.

Shourd, who was released on bail in September and returned home, has insisted the trio were innocent hikers who accidentally traversed an unmarked border into Iran.

Tehran Prosecutor-General Abbas Jafari Dolatabadi said he hoped the next trial would be held in late July and that "the final decision over their case would be made then".
