Supreme Court of Iran has upheld the 11-year imprisonment for Aram Aminzadeh, a Kurdish teacher on the charge of “acting against national security” by launching a religious group in Telegram, a reliable source told the Kurdistan Human Rights Network (KHRN).
The verdict was issued last year by Branch 1 of the Islamic Revolutionary Court of Orumiyeh. The approval of this sentence was officially served to this political prisoner at Orumiyeh Central Prison yesterday.
Aram Aminzadeh was arrested by security forces at a school in one of the villages of Bukan on June 02, 2019, and transferred to Orumiyeh Intelligence Bureau after about a month and a half of interrogation.
The Kurdish teacher was sentenced to 10 years in prison by the Orumiyeh Revolutionary Court on the charge of “acting against national security through the formation of extremist groups in the telegram Chanel” and one year in prison on the charge of “propaganda against the state”. Per Article 134 of the Islamic Penal Code regarding the ‘Totality of Sentences’, 10 years of this 11-year imprisonment sentence is enforceable.
He was also informed of being dismissed from the Department of Education when arrested. He is currently serving his 10-year imprisonment sentence at the ward of Political and Conscience Prisoners in Orumiyeh Central Prison.
