Kaveh Amiri Receives Eight-Month Prison Sentence for Propaganda-Related Charges

The Shahriar Revolutionary Court has issued an eight-month prison sentence to Kaveh Amiri, aged 39.

Judge Barjesteh, who presided over the case, recently informed Amiri that he has been sentenced to eight months for “spreading propaganda against the regime,” including time served during detention. Notably, Amiri has been acquitted of the charge of “disturbing public opinion and endangering national security.”

On September 10, 2023, Amiri was summoned to the Shahriar Public Security Police, where he was subsequently arrested and held in Evin Prison following an interrogation. He was released on bail after three days.
