Appellate court upheld 3-year prison sentence for Maryam Ghorbanifar


Tehran’s court of appeals issued ruling upholding the 3-year prison sentence for human rights activist Maryam Ghorbanifar.

On August 28, 2011, Judge Moghiseh presiding over Branch 28 of the Revolutionary Court handed down the 3-year prison sentence for blogger and women’s rights activist Maryam Ghorbanifar. The sentence of 3 years behind bars stemmed from the charges of “acting against national security” and “gathering and collusion against the regime.”

Maryam Ghorbanifar was detained on March 4, 2011 and transferred to ward 209 of Evin prison. She was kept in solitary confinement until March 28, 2011 and subjected to intense pressure during her interrogations before being released on bail.
