Committee of Human Rights Reporters (CHRR)- Kouhyar Goudarzi, human rights activist and member of the Committee of Human Rights Reports was sentenced to 6 years in prison by the 26th branch of the Revolutionary Court presided by Judge Pir Abassi. Ghoudarzi was charged with "propaganda against the regime" and "assembly and collusion against the regime".
Kouhyar Goudarzi was arrested a second time on July 31st, 2011. Following his arrest he was kept in solitary confinement for 60 days. His whereabouts were unknown for three months after his arrest. His family believes that he continues to be held in Evin’s security ward 209 [a ward under the supervision of the Ministry of Intelligence] and security authorities continue to prohibit his transfer to the general ward at Evin.
It is worth mentioning that Goudarzi is being kept at Evin’s security ward 209 despite the fact that his interrogation process has been completed and as stipulated under the law, he should be transferred to Evin’s general ward 350. Goudarzi has now spent 7 months at the security ward 209.
Parvin Mokhtareh, Kouhyar Goudarzi’s mother arrested in the city of Kerman one day after her son’s arrest was also sentenced to 23 months in prison. Her sentence was later reduced to a suspended imprisonment by the appeals court. However, as a result of another case against Mokhtareh at the 104th branch of Kerman’s General Court, the Judge presiding over her case has refused to release her from prison.
