After the Appeals Court upheld the lower court’s verdict for Ashura detainee Navid Kamran which sentenced him to 33 months in prison and 75 lashes, he began serving his sentence in the Evin Prison on Wednesday, October 27th.
According to JARS, Judge Pirabbas, the presiding judge of the 26th branch of the Revolutionary Court, had issued the verdict. Kamran was informed of the court’s decision after being summoned to the Shahid Moghaddas Prosecutor’s Office a few days ago.
He was charged with conspiracy and participating in gatherings in order to commit crimes against national security, and disturbing the public order. During last year’s presidential elections, Kamran was an activist for the website of “Association of Mousavi Supporters.” The group’s name was later changed to the “Association of Green Movement Supporters.”
