On April 24, 2023, three students from Allameh Tabataba’i University – Hasti Amiri, Fereshteh Toosi, and Zia Nabavi – were indicted in Evin Court House for protesting against serial poison attacks on schools.
According to HRANA, the news agency of Human Rights Activists, quoting Didban News, students Hasti Amiri, Fereshteh Toosi and Zia Nabavi face new legal cases for “propaganda against the regime.” The court has ordered a bond for their pre-trial release.
The students are being prosecuted for protesting against the serial poisoner attacks on schools and the mistreatment of students by university security staff.
On March 7, 2023, over thirty students of Allameh Tabataba’i University were banned from entering the campus and are facing disciplinary action. At the time, the Student Basij unit issued a statement calling for disciplinary punishments against the three indicted students.
This is not the first time these activists have faced legal action for their activism. Fereshteh Toosi and Zia Nabavi have been arrested and prosecuted before, and Hasti Amiri was imprisoned in Evin Prison from July 31, 2022, to February 7, 2023, serving a one-year sentence.
