Tehran’s Quds Judiciary Complex sentenced the Daemi sisters (Atena, Ensieh and Hanieh) to prison sentences of three months and one day.
The sisters had been exonerated in a previous court from the charge of preventing enforcement of an arrest warrant. Tehran’s No. 2 Penal Court, however, convicted all three sisters based on the “indisputable and incontestable” charge of “insulting agents while on duty”.
Atena Daemi is presently serving her seven-year prison sentence in Evin Prison. The sentences for imprisonment of Ensieh and Hanieh Daemi were suspended for one year because of the “special circumstances of the convicts”.
Atena Daemi was arrested at 8 a.m. in the morning of November 26, 2016, in an illegal raid on her residence by agents of the IRGC Sarallah Corps. She was brutalized, intimidated and arrested without a warrant and taken to Evin Prison. Her sisters were also beaten up.
