Iranian regime sentences environmentalists to 58 years in prison
Reporting by PMOI/MEK
Iran, February 19, 2020—The spokesperson for the Iranian regime’s judiciary declared on Tuesday that a court of appeals has upheld the prison sentences of eight environmentalists who have been collectively sentenced to 58 years in prison. The prisoners had been in detention since 2018. The move is seen as a bid by the Iranian regime to intimidate the public before the parliamentary elections, due on Friday.
Gholamhossein Esmaili, the judiciary spokesperson, said in a press conference that the sentenced environmentalists were involved in “a case of acting against national security” and are charged with espionage against the regime. The Iranian regime’s judiciary has a long history of using dubious “national security” and “waging war against god” charges to dole out heavy punishments to prisoners, especially political dissidents.
