Iran: Four people sentenced to prison for protesting

The judicial lawyer along with three other citizens, who participated in late December protests, were sentenced to a total 30 years in prison.

The Branch 1 of the Islamic Revolutionary Court in Arak sentenced the citizens, who live in Shazand, to a total 30 years in prison.

The judicial lawyer, Mohammad Najafi, who is serving his three-year prison term, has been reportedly sentenced to 13-year prison term again, in another court case. He was allegedly convicted of the bogus charges of "assistance to hostile states through interviews with foreign media".

Another civic activist Ali Bagheri was sentenced to 13 years in prison, according to Amad News Daily.

Masoud Ajlou and Behzad Ali-Bakhshi are the other two citizens who were sentenced to two years in suspended prison each.

The human rights lawyer has been reportedly accused of the alleged charges of revealing the death of jailed citizen Vahid Heydari at jail. Mr. Najafi was sentenced to three years in prison and 74 lashes for his human rights attempt.
