The First Branch of the Evin Courthouse summoned Shohreh Hosseini, an interpreter, and civil activist, to begin serving her sentence. Tehran’s Revolutionary Court has sentenced Shohreh Hosseini to three years and three months in prison.
The 26th Branch of Tehran’s Revolutionary Court tried Shohreh Hosseini on January 18, 2021, and sentenced her to four years and two months. Her charges included “assembly and collusion to disrupt national security,” “membership in opposition groups,” and “propaganda against the state.” Later, the sentence was commuted to three years and three months.
Agents of the IRGC Intelligence arrested Shohreh Hosseini on October 2, 2020, and transferred her to Ward A2 of Evin Prison. She was temporarily released on October 6, on a bail bond of 500 million Tomans until the disposition of her case.
On November 28, 2020, the 2nd Interrogation Branch of the Evin Courthouse summoned Ms. Hosseini. The court had increased her bail to 1 billion Tomans. She was thus arrested and taken back to Evin Prison. She has remained in detention since.
In a brief call home, she told her family that she might remain in jail until her trial convenes.
