An Iranian court will hold a third hearing for a Washington Post journalist facing a closed-door trial on charges that include espionage, an Iranian report said Tuesday.

The official Islamic Republic News Agency, citing a source within Iran’s judiciary, did not give a date for the next court session for Jason Rezaian, whose more than 10-month detention has drawn denunciations from press freedom groups and the State Department.

Rezaian, who has dual U.S. and Iranian nationality, has strongly denied the allegations. On Monday, he offered a direct defense to the judge in Tehran’s Revolutionary Court, Iranian news agencies reported.

Rezaian’s attorney, Leila Ahsan, is barred under Iranian law from revealing details about closed-door proceedings. The lack of public access to Rezaian’s trial — which began in late May — has been sharply criticized by The Post and others.

The claims against Rezaian appear to include a visit he made to a U.S. Consulate seeking a visa for his Iranian wife and a letter he wrote seeking a job in the new Obama administration in 2008 — material that was apparently taken from his confiscated laptop.

Jason Rezaian’s journey has taken him from a childhood in San Francisco to his father’s native Iran. At 37, he became the Washington Post correspondent in Tehran. In July 2014, he was thrown into Iran’s Evin Prison, where he remains. This is his story. (This video has been updated to reflect recent developments in the Rezaian case.)

The 39-year-old Rezaian, the Tehran bureau chief for The Post, was taken into custody last July along with his wife, Yeganeh Salehi, a correspondent for The National newspaper in Abu Dhabi.

Salehi was later released on bail. A photojournalist also faces charges related to the case.

Rezaian’s mother, Mary Breme Rezaian, has been in Tehran for nearly a month and has been allowed to see her son twice during brief and monitored visits, the family said. She was not allowed in the courtroom Monday.
