Iran sentences lawyer to six years of prison

Mohammad Mostafayi, a lawyer and human rights activist who represented many death row minor offenders and Sakineh Mohammadi (sentenced to death by stoning for adultery) was sentenced to six years of prison by the 28th branch of the Revolutionary Court headed by Judge Moqiseh. According to reports, this lawyer was sentenced in absentia after his case was sent to the 28th branch of the Revolutionary Court without his presence and without the time of the trial being announced to him. He was sentenced to five years of prison to be served in the town of Izeh on charges of acting against national security by giving interview to Farsi media stationed outside of Iran and talking about the case of Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani and one year of prison on charges of propagating against the government.
