Ms. Shahnaz Sagvand, wife of Mr. Ali Nejati, a union activist, was again summoned to the court in Ahvaz for a retrial. Ms. Sagvand has already faced trial in several revolutionary courts of Shush and Dezful and was declared innocent every time.
However, the Prosecutor General of Shush has challenged these verdicts by the courts in Shush and Dezful; this has resulted in three retrials in the provincial appeals court. Ms. Shahnaz Sagvand will be tried for the fourth time in the appeals court on Monday, February 3.
She is accused by the prosecutor with the bogus charges of ‘Propaganda against the regime’ solely for legally defending and pursuing her husband’s case.
