  • Segev appears at the Tel Aviv district tribunal in April 2004

Former Israeli minister and MK Gonen Segev has been arrested and charged for spying for Iran, the Israeli government has revealed.

Segev, it said, received an encrypted communications system from Iranian agents and supplied Iran with "information related to the energy sector, security sites in Israel and officials in political and security institutions".

The Shin Bet said Segev was arrested during a visit to Equatorial Guinea in May and extradited to Israel, where he is being detained.

According to the ISA, Segev met twice with Iranian operatives, knowing they were from Iranian intelligence.

Police questioning revealed that Segev's first contact with the Iranian embassy officials took place in 2013.

WHO, however, says people who engage in gaming should be alert about the amount of time they spend on gaming activities. We all play games, don't we? More than half of the 50 top-selling games are violent, according to ProCon.org .

Segev also met with his Iranian handlers at various hotels and apartments around the world that he assumed were used for covert activity, authorities allege. "Segev worked to put some of these Israeli citizens in contact with Iranian intelligence agents by misleading the former and presenting the latter as innocent Iranian businessmen", the Shin Bet said.

Attorneys Eli Zohar and Moshe Mazor of Goldfarb Seligman, representing the former minister, said they have been accompanying him since his arrival in Israel about a month ago, confirming that an indictment against their client was recently filed.

A statement from Segev's lawyers said that most details of the charges were under a state-imposed blackout. Additional details of the investigation are under a gag order. "Even at this early stage, it is possible to say that the permitted publication looks extremely severe, even though in the indictment, whose full details remain confidential, an entirely different picture emerges". He served as Minister of Energy and Infrastructure under Prime Ministers Yitzhak Rabin and Shimon Peres, from 1995-1996.

In 2004 he was charged with trying to smuggle 30,000 ecstasy pills into Israel from the Netherlands, using a diplomatic passport with a falsified expiry date. He left Israel in 2007 after his release from prison.

In 2016, Segev requested that Health Minister Ya'acov Litzman pardon him so he could move back to Israel and return to his practice as a doctor.
