Report: Verdict Issued against US Navy Veteran Held in Iran

Monday, 11 March 2019 06:38 AM EDT

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — An Iranian semi-official news agency says Iran's judiciary has delivered a verdict against U.S. Navy veteran Michael White who was detained last July in Iran but there's no information as to what the ruling is.

The Tasnim news agency quoted prosecutor Gholamali Sadeghi as saying on Monday the "verdict has been issued" against White and that he faced unspecified security charges.

Sadeghi's remarks go against a February statement by Iran's foreign ministry, which said White faces no security or espionage charge. There is no explanation on the discrepancies.

White, held in the northeastern city of Mashhad, is the first American known to be detained since Donald Trump became president.

His family says he traveled to Iran to visit his girlfriend — the two met online — and was arbitrarily detained.
