Iranian Lawyer Jalal Fatemi Sentenced to One Year in Prison for Online Activism

Jalal Fatemi, a member of Iran’s Central Bar Association, has been sentenced to one year in prison by the Tehran Revolutionary Court.

The verdict was delivered by Judge Seyed-Ali Mazloum, who cited “propaganda against the regime on the Internet” as the reason for the conviction.

The court session took place on July 10, 2023, during which Fatemi was acquitted of the charge of “blasphemy.”

In a separate development, it has come to light that Fatemi is currently facing another legal case.
