Radio Free Europe (RFERL) – A group of Iranian cyberactivists have been sentenced to prison terms ranging from one to 11 years on charges of acting against national security.
Prosecutor Yadollah Movahhed, in the southeastern Kerman Province, said in a June 19 press conference that those sentenced had ties with foreign media.
Movahhed also said the 11 activists were preparing to provide technical support to antigovernment websites.
The Iranian official said the activists had been arrested by the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps and put on trial by a revolutionary court.
He did not provide their names.
The activists can appeal their sentences.
Iran often brings security charges against intellectuals and those fighting against censorship and state repression.
