Reporting from Beirut -- The cyber-crimes unit of Iran's Revolutionary Guards announced Saturday that it had uncovered a Dutch-funded plot to use the Internet to undermine the Islamic Republic, Iranian media reported Saturday.
The announcement cited a "Dutch project" to foment discontent in order to facilitate a "soft overthrow" of the government.
"One of the Western countries that has provided the opposition with financial aid in recent years is the Netherlands," said the Revolutionary Guards statement, which was carried by several government-associated news outlets. "The Dutch project aimed to encourage sexual and moral perversion," it said.
The Dutch government in 2005 allocated about $20 million a year to support independent Farsi-language media, including a radio station and Internet magazines.
Iranian authorities recently charged Iranian American freelance journalist Roxana Saberi with espionage, alleging that she passed on information to U.S. intelligence. In December, AIDS doctors Kamiar and Arash Alaei were convicted of being linked to the CIA and taking money from the U.S. government as part of a conspiracy to overthrow the Islamic Republic.
