Fereydoon Seidi-Rad was among many citizens arrested on Februry 14, 2010. Judge Moghiseh presiding over branch 28 of Tehran’s Revolutionary Court handed this activist a 3-year prison sentence. The appellate court has now upheld this verdict.
During his interrogation Fereydoon Seidi-Rad was held in Evin prison’s ward 2A, which is controlled by the IRG (Revolutionary Guards). Eventually he was transferred to the public ward 350.
Mahsa Amrabadi, Fakhrolsadat Mohtashamipour (wife of Mostafa Taajzadeh) and Shahin Jahadi were also arrested with him. They have since been released but Fereydoon Seidi-Rad has been held behind bars without any furlough. Seidi-Rad was an activist working for Karroubi’s presidential campaign in the city of Arak.
