According to Associated Press, German prosecutors have filed espionage charges against two Iranian men accused of spying on exiled opposition members for Iranian intelligence.

Federal prosecutors said Friday that the indictment against 31-year-old Maysam P. and 33-year-old Saied R. was filed March 22 at a Berlin court. The two men's full names weren't given in keeping with German privacy rules.  Prosecutors say both men once belonged to the opposition group known as the People's Mujahedin of Iran, or MEK.

 However, they say that Maysam P. was working by January 2013 and Saied R. by August 2014 for an Iranian intelligence service and that they were tasked with obtaining information on members of the MEK and its National Council of Resistance arm in Germany and other European Union countries.

Based on other reports received by Iran Probe, the Iranian regime terrorist agent by the name of Sajjad (Kian Mehr) was handler of the two spies arrested. He is currently wanted for questioning by the German prosecutors.
Maysam P. the arrested VEVAK / MOIS agent, and his accomplices were expelled from Camp Liberty by the PMOI / MEK back in April 2013. They then went to Baghdad’s Hotel Mohajer, controlled by the VEVAK / MOIS and Iran’s terrorist Quds Force, the foreign wing of the IRGC. Prior to this the National Council of Resistance of Iran’s Anti-Terrorism Commission issued a statement on 26 February 2014 providing in-depth details describing Hotel Mohajer a center used by the Iranian regime’s mullahs and Quds Force and run by a Quds Force brigadier general, known as “Sajjad.”
