The indictment described Mesri as a "self-professed expert" in hacking who had worked on behalf of Iran's military to attack military systems, nuclear software systems and Israeli infrastructure.
Nevertheless, Trump keeps publicly pressuring the Congress to reintroduce sanctions against Iran and Mesri's case may well be a part of his anti-Tehran campaign. The Washington Postreported that Justice Department prosecutors were being pressed to consider making public any investigations or charges involving Iran or its citizens.
A warrant has been issued for his arrest, and should he get caught, Mesri could face up a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison: "up to five years for each of the four charges related to computer fraud; a two-year mandatory sentence for aggravated identity theft; and up to two years in prison for the extortion charge".
Documents show how Mesri began research into HBO's computer networks and staff in May 2017.
No substantive proof of the link between Iranian officials and Mesri, who has now been added to the FBI's most wanted list, has been offered in the statement.
