567

ICBHR– Tehran Islamic Revolutionary Court has increased a sentence to 25 years in prison against jailed citizen Babak Dadbakhsh.

The Islamic court imposed the additional verdict as a different judgment when Babak was allegedly summoned to the courtroom.

He, who lost his wife and one of his children in an accident, was informed that the judiciary authorities issued the 25-year prison term on the excuses that the initial conviction was incomplete.

Babak was serving his 17-year imprisonment at Karaj Gohardasht prison (aka Rajai Shahr) before the recent notice. The initial sentence was given at Branch 28 of the Islamic Revolutionary Court, chaired by infamous Judge Mohammad Moghiseh.

The 38-year-old citizen was arrested by Security Police in November 2018, and agents handed him over to the Ministry of Intelligence. He was kept in Tehran notorious Evin prison and Great Tehran Penitentiary since the arrest.

He committed suicide two times because of his mental disorders caused by prison conditions. According to reliable sources, he was institutionalized at the Razi Educational and Therapeutic Psychiatric Center (Amin Abad) due to bipolar disorder with psychotic symptoms and Major Depressive Disorder (MDD).

Previously, he was reportedly served prison term during 2007-2009.
