Ruhollah Zam’s trial begins

MNA – The 15th branch of Islamic Revolutionary Court in Tehran started trial of Ruhollah Zam, the administrator of the counterrevolutionary website Amad News, on Monday morning.

Judge Abolghasem Salavati presides over Zam’s court.

Ruhollah Zam was arrested after a complex intelligence operation and through cooperation with other intelligence services in mid-October, 2019.

Zam, in recent years, had become a tool in the hands of espionage services and anti-Iran bodies and had been publishing false news against the country in a Telegram channel known as ‘Amad News’.

“Intelligence forces had been keeping a careful watch over Ruhollah Zam’s movements for a long time and he stepped into intelligence trap of IRGC some two years ago; ultimately, we were able to arrest him through cooperation with other intelligence services,” Second Brigadier General Mohammad Tavallaei, a high-ranking military official in IRGC headquarters said at the time.
