Iran's Supreme Court confirmed the controversial death sentence against a prominent medical doctor, Iran's Attorney General Abbas Jafari Dolatabadi said Monday.

Iranian-Swedish scientist Ahmad-Reza Djalali confessed to having provided foreign security services with secret documents about Iran's nuclear and defence programme as well as information about Iranian nuclear scientists, Dolatabadi said in a statement.
These documents were provided in exchange for money and Swedish nationality, the ISNA news agency quoted Dolatabadi as saying.
The attorney general did not state when Djalali's execution would take place.
Djalali, who resides in Sweden and has worked in Italy and Belgium, was detained in April 2016 while on a visit to Iran, his country of birth.
Djalali last week confessed on Iranian state television to having provided Israel with information over Iran's nuclear programme. He has also been accused of aiding Israeli secret agents in murdering two Iranian nuclear scientists.
