8 Facebook Activists Sentenced to 133 Years Imprisonment

HRANA News Agency – 133 year imprisonment sentence of 8 Facebook activists was just confirmed by the Revision department of the Supreme Court.

According to the report of Human Rights Activists News Agency (HRANA), during the past few days, the Supreme Court confirmed the sentences for Masood Seyed Talebi, Fariborz Kardarfar, Amin Akramipoor, Amir Golestani, Masood Ghasemkhani, Mehdi Rayshahri, Roya Saberi Nezhad Nobakhti and Naghmeh Shahsavandi.

The Supreme Court’s decision has many uncertainties and aggregating all cases together is not accepted and finally it is not specified that how much imprisonment each of these prisoners should endure.

An informed source in this regard, told HRANA’s reporter: “According to the new rule, determination about the sentence duration has been deposited to the enforcement office’s judge, under Article 134, which is against the law.”

It is worth mentioning, Masood Seyed Talebi, was sentenced first to 15 years imprisonment by the lower branch (branch 28 of the Revolutionary Court Judge Moghiseh) and after several months, blasphemy charges were added and the sentence was increased to 20 years by the same branch.

The charges that these people have been convicted of, have been stated as: “Gathering and collusion against national security, propaganda against the regime, blasphemy, insulting heads of regime”.

That is to say, these people are ordinary people who have been arrested because of blasphemy and insulting officials on Facebook. The oldest is a 42-year-old woman and the youngest is a 21-year-old man in this case.
