Iran: authorities

Ali Nikoo Nesbati,a member of the Assembly Council of the Office for Strengthening Unity, is sentenced by Branch no. 21 of Tehran’s Court of Appeals to four months detention and ten lashes for disturbing public order.
This verdict was changed to a fine due to the fact that he did not have a prior record.
The reason for the ruling and these charges is a letter that he wrote with Ali Azizi, a former member of the Central Assembly and the Assembly Council of the Office for Strengthening Unity, Arman Sedaghati and Pedram Raf’ati and other members of the Office for Strengthening Unity’s General Assembly to President Ahmadinejad after his return from Columbia University and his appearance at Tehran University in October 2007.
Azizi is sentenced to three years imprisonment, Arman Sedaghati is sentenced to two years imprisonment. Other files are under investigation and being processed.
Bahareh Hedayat, the head of public relations for the Office for Strengthening Unity,in objection to the verdict of Nikoo Nesbati, said that in a country the President claims is the freest country in the world, an arrest order has been issued for a student who asked a question of the President and throughout the process the legal authorities’orders were disregarded and Nikoo Nesbati was kept in jail for 31 days illegally.
