The Tehran revolutionary court sentenced Mostafa Tajzadeh to eight years imprisonment. This verdict is considered final due to Tajzadeh’s refusal to appeal.
According to HRANA, the news agency of Human Rights Activists, former Deputy Interior Minister Mostafa Tajzadeh was sentenced to eight years imprisonment.
His lawyer, Hooshang Pirbabai, tweeted that his client has been sentenced to five years on the charge of “assembly and collusion,” two years on “spreading falsehood,” and one year on “propaganda against the regime.” Based on Article 134 of the Islamic Penal Code, five years for the first charge will be enforceable.
On July 8, 2022, the IRGC Intelligence agents arrested Tajzadeh in Tehran and transferred him to Ward 2-A of Evin prison.
Mostafa Tajzadeh was the deputy interior minister of President Mohammad Khatami.
