International Liberty Association: Neda Sabouri, Female Journalist, is Sentenced to 3.5 Years in Prison. Tehran Province’s Revision Court upheld the sentence of 3 years and 6 months of imprisonment for a female journalist on the charge of “assembly and collusion.” Female journalist Neda Sabouri has been serving her sentence since 7 August 2020 in the women’s ward of Evin Prison.
In April 2014, female journalist Neda Sabouri accompanied the families of political prisoners in their protest gatherings outside the Iran parliament, the Prosecutor’s Office and the office of Iran president.
The gatherings were in protest to the brutal beating of political prisoners in Ward 350 of Evin Prison. Ms. Sabouri and six others were arrested during these protests.
On 14 April 2014, the special guards of Evin Prison raided Ward 350 and viciously brutalized the political prisoners detained there. A number of political prisoners were wounded and subsequently taken to solitary confinement.
ILA: One of these political prisoners, Gholamreza Khosravi, was subsequently executed.
