The authorities in Washington have formally charged 39-year-old Monica Witt, the US Department of Justice announced Wednesday. Now the woman is being sought with an international arrest warrant.

The woman defected to the Iranian intelligence service in 2013 to help spy on her former colleagues. According to the authorities, Witt allegedly disclosed the identity of an American agent, thereby putting his “life on the line”. In addition, they should have revealed code names from confidential information from a spy program.

Witt worked according to Ministry of Justice until 2008 for the counterintelligence of the Air Force. In the years after that she had changed to the Iranian camp for “ideological” reasons. In 2012, she traveled to Iran, according to the agency, to attend the conference of an organization close to the Revolutionary Guards.

The woman is wanted. “She is charged with distributing a highly confidential intelligence program to the Iranian regime and the identity of a US intelligence officer,” Deputy Prosecutor General John Demers said. All this is contrary to the law, to the oath of office and to human reason.

With the woman, four Iranians have been charged with cyber espionage. They are said to have accessed data from American intelligence agencies with the help of social media accounts.
