Eight Film and Media Practitioners Face Legal Charges

The Tehran Prosecutor’s Office has brought charges against seven film practitioners, including Taraneh Alidoosti, Mojgan Ilanlou, Hengameh Ghaziani, Tahmineh Rezaie Milani, Sahar Valadbeigi, Maryam Boubani, Hanieh Tavassoli, and media activist Omid Tousheh.

They are accused of “disseminating false information on the Internet,” as reported by IRNA.

Notably, just a day before, the Tehran Prosecutor also indicted Sadegh Zibakalam, an Iranian academic and writer, Sara Massoumi, Milad Alavi, and the administrator of a Telegram Channel on the same charge.

Among these eight individuals, Alidoosti, Ilanlou, Ghaziani, Milani, and Tavassoli have previously faced arrests and convictions.
