The detained Washington Post reporter Jason Rezaian will be back in court Monday on what could be the final hearing in his trial for spying on Iran, his lawyer said.Rezaian, a 39-year-old dual Iranian-American citizen, who until his arrest was working as the US newspaper's Tehran correspondent, has been in prison in the Iranian capital for more than a year.Monday's hearing at a Revolutionary Court, which usually presides over political cases or those related to national security, will be the fourth in the case.US President Barack Obama and other top official have urged Iran to release the journalist, but Tehran does not recognize dual nationality and says only the judiciary can decide Rezaian's fate.
