The Spanish police arrested three people in Madrid and Torrelavaga on suspicion of involvement in a network spying on dissidents of the Iranian regime, the Spanish press reported Friday.

According to the report, the suspects allegedly infiltrated a Spanish NGO aiding asylum seekers and communicated to the Iranian secret services the identities of people who fled the country for ideological reasons.

The police reportedly believe the three to be members of a spy network allegedly controlled by the Iranian intelligence services from the seat of its own embassy in Madrid.
