A political activist has been arrested in the southern city of Ahvaz, according to media reports.
Melli-Mazhabi, a site associated with the Patriotic-Religious movement, reported that one of its activists Masoud Ladoni was arrested at his home in Ahvaz on 5 January. Ladoni was then reportedly taken to the city’s Revolutionary Court and afterwards to Karoun Prison.
Convicted of having acted against national security through his ties to the Patriotic-Religious front, Ladoni was sentenced to two years in prison.
The Melli-Mazhabi site says that Ladoni was heavily invested in cultural and political activities in Ahvaz, all of which were within the confines of the law.
The experienced activist also spent time behind prison bars during the 1980s for his political activism. Following the 2009 presidential election, Ladoni was summoned, interrogated and detained on a number of occasions.
His wife Parvin Kahzadi also faced judicial intimidation for her activism and work in journalism. She and their only son recently left the country.
