Azam Gholami Zahab Receives 16-Year Prison Sentence

The Mashhad Revolutionary Court has issued a 16-year prison sentence for Azam Gholami Zahab, who is currently incarcerated in Vakilabad Prison, Mashhad.

A source close to her family has informed HRANA that Gholami Zahab’s sentence includes ten years for “forming a group to act against national security,” five years for “assembly and collusion against the regime,” and one year for “spreading propaganda against the regime.”

Should this verdict be upheld on appeal, the ten-year imprisonment for the first charge will become enforceable.

In a previous revelation to HRANA, another source disclosed that Gholami Zahab had declined legal representation by a private lawyer.

Azam Gholami Zahab, a mother of one child, was arrested in September/October 2022 in Mashhad and has since been held in Vakilabad Prison.
