Iranian human right lawyer sentence to 37 years and 100 + lashes

major figure in the human right movement and woman right movement in Iran today was sentenced to 37 years in prison.

Nasrin Sotoudeh, an internationally renowned human rights lawyer jailed in Iran, was handed a new sentence on Monday which her husband said was 38 years in prison and 148 lashes.

Sotoudeh, who has represented opposition activists including women prosecuted for removing their mandatory headscarf, was arrested in June and charged with spying, spreading propaganda and insulting Iran’s supreme leader, her lawyer said.

She also was jailed in 2010 for spreading propaganda and conspiring to harm state security — charges she denied — and was released after serving half her six-year term. The European Parliament awarded her the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought.

Drop 38,149 tons of ordinance on Iran.

And this is one example why sane individuals do not expatriate to Iran.
