Accused of spying for Israel to go to court

[27 December 2008]

SANA'A, Dec. 27 (Saba) - The Specialized Penal Prosecution has completed investigations with three locals accused of spying for Israeli intelligence services, informed sources have noted.

The state-run quoted these sources as saying the accused confessed during investigations to working for Israel through communication with the office of Israeli prime minister Ehud Olmert and Israel's Mossad intelligence agency via an unreal internet web "FFRN".

They said they expressed readiness to transfer information about Yemen, an offer which was welcomed by the Israeli side.

However, the Israeli side told them they wanted them to conduct spy operations at the regional level.

The case would be referred to the Penal Court in prelude to their trial.

A security source said the three-member spying ring, arrested in October, was a jihadist network led by Emad Ali Saeed al-Runi, Abul Ghaith, and had threatened to attack foreign and Arab missions in the country including the embassies of Saudi Arabia, Britain and the United Arab Emirates.

During the raid on the network's hideout, security forces found items including a computer set, which revealed there was contact between the network and an Israeli intelligence service.

During the correspondence, the network asked for help to carry out terrorist activities inside Yemen, the security source said.
