The singer, Peyman Mirzade, was arrested by the Iranian regime's security forces in February.

Regarding this new ruling, he has to spend three-and-half years in prison.
Peyman mirzade was previously arrested in 2017 for so-called “disseminating propaganda against the government” and spent six months in prison.
