The Iranian intelligence security gunmen had arrested him on the road between the cities of Sanandaj and Mariwan on 10 March 2008.
The security gunmen had hit his head with the butt of their weapons and he had immediately fainted at the time of his arrest.
He was then transferred to the interrogation detention of the intelligence offices in the cities of Sanandaj and Kermanshah.
The Islamic Revolutionary Court in Sanandaj sentenced him to 30 years in prison in exile in Kashmar pf Khorasane Razavi province after months of torture in pre-trial detentions of the intelligence offices in both Sanandaj and Kermanshah.
Shaker Baghi´s lawyer appealed the sentence to the Appeal Court of the province, but the court confirmed the sentence without considering the defendant’s right to appeal.
Baghi e was transferred to Kashmar prison in 2010.
Political prisoner Shaker Baghi originally comes from the city of Van in North Kurdistan (southeast Turkey).
