Pakistani jailed in Germany for spying for Iran

Berlin

A Pakistani man was convicted in Germany Monday of spying for Iran to search out potential attack targets for the Revolutionary Guards.
The defendant, 31-year-old Mustufa Haidar Syed-Naqfi, was sentenced to four years and three months in prison “for working for a foreign intelligence service”, a spokesperson for Berlin’s superior court said.
The court found he spied “against Germany and another NATO member”, France, for the Quds Force, the foreign operations wing of the elite Revolutionary Guards.
