Judge meets relatives of jailed Jews

TEHRAN, Aug 8 (Reuters) - Families of 10 Iranian Jews jailed for spying for Israel met a senior judicial official on Tuesday to demand better conditions for the prisoners.

Relatives told reporters they had tabled a list of demands in talks with Hossein-Ali Amiri, local judiciary chief in the southern city of Shiraz.

They asked the authorities to double the number of Kosher meals the prisoners received to two a week, to return the prisoners' properties, which were seized after their arrest, and to unfreeze their bank accounts.

The relatives said Amiri agreed to the first demand but said he would have to discuss the others with the judges assigned to the case.

``He was very positive,'' one relative said.

A revolutionary court in Shiraz sentenced the 10 Jews and two Moslems to lengthy jail terms last month after convicting them of espionage.

All of the accused have appealed their convictions, and Amiri said recently that a three-judge panel had been set up to review their case.

Israel has denied any links to the group, whose trial was held behind closed doors and criticised by overseas Jewish groups and Western governments.
