Lawyer: Washington Post Reporter’s Trial Resumes Monday in Iran

Detained Washington Post reporter Jason Rezaian will be back in an Iranian court Monday for what likely will be the last hearing in his closed-door espionage trial, his lawyer said Saturday.

"They told me that this will be the last hearing, but I cannot be 100 percent sure because there are always unexpected matters," Rezaian's lawyer Leila Ahsan told the French news agency AFP.

Rezaian, a 39-year-old dual Iranian-American citizen, who until his arrest was working as the U.S. newspaper's Tehran correspondent, has been in prison in the Iranian capital for more than a year.
