Iran Protests: Neda Faragari Jailed in Amol Prison

Neda Faragari, arrested at recent nationwide protests, is currently jailed in Amol Prison, Mazandaran Province. The Amol Revolutionary Court has sentenced her to two years in prison and paying a fine.

December 22, 2022, she was sentenced to two years in prison for “assembly and collusion against national security,” paying a fine for “propaganda against the regime,” and “insulting the Supreme Leader of Iran.”

On trial, chanting slogans such as “death to the dictator” at a commemoration ceremony on the 40th day of Ghazaleh Chalabi, one of the protestors killed by the regime forces at protests, was presented as an example of the charge of “insulting the Supreme Leader.” Faragari was arrested at the commemoration ceremony for Ghazaleh Chalabi on November 3, 2022, in Amol.

According to reports obtained by HRANA, her attendance and others at this ceremony were interpreted by the court as an act to conspire against national security (mentioned as ‘chain collusion’), pre-coordinated based on a “shared goal rather than by a leader.”
