Student activist Bahman Darolshafaei begins serving out 5 ½ year jail term

Student activist Yashar Darolshafaei has referred to Evin Prison to serve out his jail-term.

According to opposition site Kaleme, Darolshafaei, a postgraduate student at Tehran University, has begun serving a 5 ½ year prison sentence.

Darolshafaei was initially arrested on 4 November 2009 and spent three weeks in Evin Prison. He was arrested again on 10 February that year along with six other members of his family, including his mother and brother. He was released 32 days later.

A court presided over by Judge Salavati later sentenced Darolshafaei to seven years in jail for national security charges and insulting the president. The sentence was later commuted to 5 ½ years.

The young activist was formerly the head of a pro-reform student organisation at the Imam khomeini International University of Qazvin.
