On January 11, political prisoner Reza Mazaheri was summoned by Evin Courthouse to face another legal case, while already serving a two year sentence in Evin Prison.
According to HRANA, the news agency of Human Rights Activists, Mazaheri has been charged with “spreading lies” in a new legal case and summoned by Branch 3 of the Evin Prosecutor’s Office. The resident of Tehran has been serving his sentence in Evin Prison since December 5, 2021.
On December 29, 2018, the security forces arrested Mazaheri. After being indicted by Branch 2 of Evin Prosecutor’s Office, he was jailed in Ward 4 of Evin Prison. On April 15, 2019, he was released from jail on bail of 2 billion tomans (475,910 USD) pending further legal proceedings.
On March 15, 2020, the Branch 28 of the Revolutionary Court of Tehran sentenced him to two years in prison on the charges of “propaganda against the regime” and “spreading lies”. This verdict was upheld by Branch 36 of Tehran’s court of appeals.
