HRANA News Agency – Sina Mehdinia, a student at Babol Noshirvani University of Technology, has been sentenced by Babol’s Revolutionary Court to six months in prison.
According to a report by Daneshjoo News, local sources have stated that last March, police forces summoned Sina Mehdinia to serve his prison term. However, since his sentence was preliminary and had not been formally communicated to him, his attorney’s appeal was granted. Currently, Sina Mehdinia’s case is pending a decision by the appeals court.
Sina Mehdinia was arrested during Ashura protests organized by Babol’s Green Movement in 2009. After spending eleven days in solitary confinement, he was released on bail approximately equivalent to $30,000.
