Sanaz Jahan Tigh, a political prisoner and one of the detainees during the nationwide protests of 2022, is currently serving a two-year and six-month sentence at Tir Kala Prison in Sari.

Jahan Tigh was detained by security forces in late August 2023 and subsequently sentenced on September 9, 2023, to two years and six months in prison by the Sari Revolutionary Court. The charges against her, as reported by HRANA, include “propaganda against the regime” and “insulting the Supreme Leader of Iran.”

During her arrest, security agents conducted a search of her residence, confiscating various personal items such as books and manuscripts.

Jahan Tigh, who is about 30 years old and hails from Ghaemshahr, has been arrested twice before for her involvement in the 2021 nationwide protests. She has previously spent time in detention facilities in both Sari and Ghaemshahr, released on bail each time.

Additionally, she had been arrested in connection with earlier protests in Khuzestan and subsequently released after securing bail.
