Majid Khademi Imprisoned in Behbahan Prison for Sentencing

On Tuesday, August 22, Majid Khademi, aged 31, a resident of Behbahan, commenced serving his sentence in Behbahan Prison.

Khademi was summoned by the Public and Revolutionary Court of Behbahan to appear for sentencing. Initially handed a ten-year and one-month sentence, Khademi’s legal journey took a turn after his plea of no contest and a subsequent reduction in his punishment. The final verdict stipulates five years and five months of imprisonment for “assembly and collusion against national security,” in addition to one year and four months for “spreading propaganda against the regime.” Pursuant to Article 134 of the Islamic Penal Code, an enforceable sentence of five years, five months, and 18 days has been established.

In addition to his prison term, Khademi has been subjected to supplementary penalties, including a mandatory two-year residency requirement in Taft County within the Yazd province, along with a prohibition from engaging in civil/political groups for a duration of two years. Furthermore, his participation in orientation classes has been mandated.

Khademi also finds himself grappling with another legal case that stems from an arrest on June 22, 2022, following a court appearance at the Mahshahr Revolutionary Court. After a period of detention, he was eventually released on bail from Sheyban Prison in Ahvaz.

On January 18, 2020, Khademi was arrested by IRGC Intelligence and subsequently taken to a detention facility in Behbahan City. Following one month of interrogation, he was transferred to Behbahan Prison. On June 15, 2021, Khademi was released on bail of 2.5 billion tomans until the conclusion of legal proceedings.
