Golrokh Ebrahimi Iraee sentenced to 5 years in jail
The 36th Branch of the Revision Court of Tehran Province sentenced political prisoner Golrokh Ebrahimi Iraee to five years of jail time on charges of “assembly and collusion,” “propaganda against the state,” and “disruption of public order.” The news was published on Sunday, July 2, 2023.
For additional punishments, Ms. Ebrahimi Iraee is also banned from membership in parties and groups, presence in Tehran, and leaving the country for two years. Her mobile phone will also be confiscated.
The trial of Ms. Golrokh Ebrahimi Iraee was held on June 18, 2023, in her absence.
Security forces violently arrested Golrokh Ebrahimi at her home on September 26, 2022. They ransacked her residence and confiscated some of her personal belongings.
In late October, Branch 2 of Evin’s Prosecutor’s Office informed Ms. Iraee regarding “assembly and collusion” and “propaganda against the state.”
Golrokh had been previously arrested and detained for her activities. In the latest case against her, the 26th Branch of the Revolutionary Court of Tehran sentenced her to three years and seven months in prison. The court also deprived her of membership in any group or party for two years.
The Revision Court later upheld the above verdict without convening any hearing.
Based on Article 134 of the clerical regime’s Penal Code, two years and one month of the verdict was applicable.
In April 2021, Golrokh Ebrahimi was sentenced to one year in absentia and banned for two years from joining any group or party and leaving the country. Ms. Iraee had not informed of the convening of such a trial session.
Golrokh Iraee was finally released from the Prison of Amol on May 9, 2022.
