Jason Rezaian of Washington Post May Soon Get Verdict in Iran, Lawyer Says

TEHRAN — An Iranian court could hand down a verdict in the trial of Jason Rezaian, the Washington Post correspondent charged with espionage, within a week, his lawyer told reporters on Monday, as a fourth and possibly final hearing in the case was held in Tehran.

The lawyer, Leila Ahsan, told reporters that “this was the final hearing” and said that Iranian law called for a verdict to be issued by next Monday. The Post’s top editor, Martin Baron, said in a statement on Monday that the trial had ended.
