Iran: Dissident Sentenced to Seven Years in Prison


ICBHR– Milad Arsanjani, who was arrested during 2019 Iran Protests, was sentenced to seven years in prison.

The Islamic Revolutionary Court issued the verdict on the bogus charges of “assembly and collusion against national security”, and “insulting the Supreme Leader”, according to the rights groups.

Islamic security agents broke the door and arrested Milad at his house in Shahriar, west of Iran’s capital and took him into Great Tehran Penitentiary after the interrogation process was over.

According to Article 134 of the Islamic Penal Code, the imprisoned citizen, who is being jailed at Great Tehran Penitentiary with no appropriate conditions, should serve just five years of the sentences if Islamic appeal court confirmed the conviction.

The Islamic authorities ridiculously accused him of aiding a citizen who was directly shot and injured during the protests in November 2019, and keeping up the assistance with the victim until the end of treatment.
