According to reports, two Sunni prisoners from city of Ahwaz (Southwestern Iran) have been sentenced to another year in prison by the Iranian regime’s judiciary in Ahwaz for refusing to give up their beliefs.
Abdolhakim Khazraji (Marvani), 26, and Mehdi Haydari, 32, both from Malashieh district in the south of city of Ahwaz, were arrested in early winter 2015 by Iranian regime’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security in Ahwaz for promoting their belief.
After being held for months in MOIS detention center and being subjected to physical and psychological tortures, the two were sentenced to one year in prison.
Their sentence was about to end in September, but before it was over, they were summoned by Ahwaz Revolutionary Court Branch 4.
The prisoners were asked signing a written commitment to refrain from their religious activities. After refusing to sign such a commitment the regime’s judiciary sentenced each of the prisoners to another year in prison.
Khazraji and Haydari are currently serving their sentences in Sheiban Prison in Ahwaz.
