Siamak Ebrahimi and Shahrokh Ahmadi Commence Prison Sentences

Residents of Tehran, Siamak Ebrahimi and Shahrokh Ahmadi, have begun serving their sentences in Evin Prison.

Both Ebrahimi and Ahmadi were arrested by security forces on February 7, 2023, and subsequently released on a 700 million tomans bail (approximately 14,000 dollars) from Evin Prison.

In August 2023, under the jurisdiction of Iman Afshari, Branch 26 of the Tehran Revolutionary Court sentenced Ebrahimi to five years for “assembly and collusion against national security” and eight months for “spreading propaganda against the regime.” Ahmadi received a four-year sentence for “assembly and collusion against national security.” These sentences were upheld on appeal.

Reports from the Department of Statistics and Publication of HRA in 2023 indicate a total of 193 cases in which Branch 26 of the Tehran Revolutionary Court, presided over by Judge Iman Afshari, has been involved in issuing verdicts that infringe upon the human rights of defendants. For a comprehensive examination of the details and statistics, refer to HRANA’s report.
