Judge Farati, based at the armed forces judicial organization, handed down sentences totalling over 10 years for the university students.
According to Daneshjoonews, pursuant to the investigations into these cases, close to 40 students received imprisonment, and suspended sentences with heavy fines. Prior to this on May 9, 2011, the country’s Attorney General had announced that when all the files were reviewed, verdicts would be handed down for 40 students.
Also prior to this Avat Rezania, a Kurdish doctorate student at Tehran University was convicted of “disturbing public order” and sentenced to a 3 month suspended prison term along with 74 lashes that can be substituted with a $3,000 fine.
Also Habib Farhazadi was sentenced to a 10 month suspended prison term with 74 lashes that can be substituted with $5,000.
These sentences are preliminary and there is a twenty-day period allowed for any appeals.
These verdicts were handed down despite the fact that no official reports have been shared regarding any convictions for the actual perpetrators of the crimes. The students who were considered to be the victims and plaintiffs in these cases ended up being the ones convicted.
