Committee of Human Rights Reporters – Nasim Soltan Beigi former student activist at Allameh Tabatabai University entered Evin prison moments ago to serve her prison sentence.
On November 30 2010, this student activist was handed a 6-year prison term by the Revolutionary Court; 3 years for “propaganda against the regime,” one year for “assembly and collusion against national security”, and an additional 2-year suspended term added from a case in 1987. This 6-year sentence was sent to the court of appeals after Soltan Beigi’s objection.
Nasim Soltan Beigi was a leftist student who was among students arrested in a widespread crackdown on student activists in November 2007. She spent 56 days behind bars in ward 209 of Evin prison before being released on (about $50,000) bail. She had previously been arrested on June 12, 2006 and at that time was handed down a 2-year suspended prison sentence.
