Assassin of IRI nuclear expert executed

The man convicted of espionage and assassination on behalf of the Israeli spy agency, Mossad, executed in Tehran’s Evin Prison.

Majid Jamali Fashi, who assassinated top Iranian nuclear physicist, Massoud Ali-Mohammadi in January 2011, was brought to justice under the Iranian judicial system on Tuesday.

Jamali Fashi was also found guilty of receiving training from Mossad inside ‘Israel’ as well as $120,000 to assassinate the Iranian scientist.

The Mossad assassin had also confessed to having received forged documents in Azerbaijan’s Heydar Aliyev Airport to travel to Tel Aviv.

He also pleaded guilty to charges of damaging residential structures in Iran following the terrorist act as well as keeping drugs at home.

He was sentenced to death after being convicted in a trial last August.

Professor Ali-Mohammadi, a lecturer at Tehran University, was killed when an explosive-laden motorbike was blown up with a remote-controlled device near his home in the Qeytariyeh neighborhood of northern Tehran on January 12, 2010.
