Political Activist Babak Moradifar Arrested at Evin Courthouse in Tehran

On November 1, political activist Babak Moradifar (Moradi-Far) faced arrest while appearing at Evin Courthouse.

Moradifar has been charged with multiple offenses, including “propaganda against the regime” and “disturbing public opinion.” His arrest occurred after being summoned to Evin Courthouse and detained following a court session.

Notably, Moradifar had previously been arrested by security forces on October 8, 2022, during nationwide protests. He was subsequently released on bail from Evin Prison on November 28. Later, the Tehran Revolutionary Court imposed a three-year sentence on this political and civil activist for “assembly and collusion against national security,” along with an additional one year and three months for “propaganda against the regime.” However, he was eventually granted a pardon, resulting in the closure of his case.
