`Adnan Rahmat-Penah faces a new sentence


HRANA, March 17, 2015.

A court in Shiraz has handed down another 18-month sentence for `Adnan Rahmat-Penah ( عدنان رحمت‌پناه ), a Bahai from Shiraz who has served nearly 5 months of a one-year sentence in Adel-Abad prison in Shiraz. On March 11, the lower court sentenced him to 6 months in prison on charges of insulting the President of Iran and 12 months for preparing and distributing means of evading the filters which the Iranian government has imposed on internet traffic. Bail was set at 1 billion rials (34,000 euros, 35,000 US dollars), pending the confirmation of this sentence by the court of review. His trial on these charges occurred about a month before his release.
