Mohammad Abolhasani Sentenced to Four Years in Prison

The Tehran Revolutionary Court sentenced imprisoned civil rights activist Mohammad Abolhasani to four years in prison in a new legal case.

According to HRANA, the news agency of Human Rights Activists, civil rights activist Mohammad Abolhasani was sentenced to four years on the charge of “assembly and collusion.”

On August 24, 2022, Abolhasani was indicted on the charges of “propaganda against the regime” and “association with anti-regime media.”
 
It is the second time that Abolhasani has faced a new legal case during incarceration.

On June 13, 2019, security forces arrested Abolhasani. Tehran Revolutionary Court sentenced him to two years on the charge of “assembly and collusion against national security”. This verdict was later reduced to 18 months. For the charge of “spreading falsehood”, he was banned from leaving the country for two years and additional punishments.

While Abolhasani was serving his sentence, judicial authorities opened a new case against him and two other civil rights activists Arsham Rezai and Shakila Monfared. He was then sentenced to 15 months in prison on the charge of “propaganda against the regime”. In April 2021, he served his sentence and was released from Evin Prison. However, he had to provide bail for the new charge.
