The family of a British Iranian dual national, Alireza Akbari sentenced to death in Iran says authorities are preparing to execute him.

Speaking with newsmen, Mr. Akbari’s wife, Maryam, said she had been asked to come to his prison for a final meeting and that he had been moved to solitary confinement.

Mr. Akbari who was a former Deputy Iranian defence minister was arrested in 2019 and convicted of spying for the UK, which he denied.
