Student activist sentenced to 3 years of prison and barred from education for protesting

Hamed Omidi was sentenced to three years of prison based on article 610 of the Islamic Penal Code. According to reports from Omidi’s lawyer, this student activist was sentenced to three years of prison on charges of assembling and conspiring against national security.  He was arrested because of a film showing him in a protest gathering of Kurd students in Tehran’s universities and Judge Moqiseh sentenced him to the maximum punishment saying that he was in the front line of the protest and was carrying a picture (of Kurd political prisoner Ehsan Fatahian). In addition to his three year prison sentence he was also sentenced to being expelled from university and a ban on continuing his education in any university or academic level.
