Iran Protests: Sahand Nourmohammadzadeh Sentenced to Imprisonment and Exile

Branch 26 of the Tehran Revolutionary Court sentenced Sahand Nourmohammadzadeh to six years in prison and ten years of exile in Kahnuj, Kerman Province. This sentence was issued after his death sentence was overturned by the Supreme Court.

According to HRANA, the news agency of Human Rights Activists, quoting Shargh Newspaper, Sahand Nourmohammadzadeh, one of the individuals arrested at the 2022 nationwide protests, has been sentenced to imprisonment and exile.

Nourmohammadzadeh has received ten years of exile for “enmity against God (moharebeh),” five years in prison for “assembly and collusion against national security,” and one year in prison for “disturbing public order.”

Ahmadi expressed disappointment that the judge, contrary to the Supreme Court’s decision, did not dismiss the charge of Moharebeh. Additionally, Ahmadi announced that he would object to this verdict.
Nourmohammadzadeh was initially sentenced to death, but the Supreme Court overturned this decision and sent the case to Branch 26 for review.
