KUWAIT CITY (AFP) — A spy network Kuwait busted for allegedly working for Iran’s Revolutionary Guards is operating in other Gulf Arab states, a hardline Islamist lawmaker said on Tuesday.

“Investigations have indicated that the network is active and present in most other Gulf states,” MP Mohammad Hayef told reporters outside the parliament.

“High-level (security) meetings are taking place between Gulf Arab states to follow up on the latest developments of the spy cell. Gulf states must take a united decisive position toward Iran,” Hayef said.

The lawmaker, who did not elaborate on the source of the information, called on Gulf states to review their relations with Iran to force it to halt such practices.

Hayef urged the Kuwaiti government to reveal the identity of the spy cell members and those backing it inside and outside Kuwait. He also reiterated calls for Kuwait to expel the Iranian ambassador.

Hayef, who is from the ultra-conservative Salafi sect of Islam, is well known for his anti-Iranian stance.

A government spokesman said on Monday that Kuwaiti security agencies have been questioning a number of suspects in connection with the spy cell.

But Mohammed al-Baseeri declined to give details on the number of suspects, their nationalities or the charges against them. He also declined to say if the spy cell was linked to Iran.

Newspapers reported on Tuesday that the number of people detained rose to 11 after security forces arrested four new suspects.

The reports said members of the network were asked to monitor and take pictures of Kuwaiti and US military sites for the Revolutionary Guards.

Iran has categorically denied any link to the Kuwaiti cell.
