No Irão, um país auto-declarado moderado, o preço da propaganda é alto e prejudica gravemente a saúde.
Iranian journalist Marzieh Rasouli said Monday that she has been sentenced to two years in Tehran’s notorious Evin prison and 50 lashes for publishing anti-regime propaganda.
Rasouli, respected for her work as an arts and culture reporter for leading reformist media outlets, including the Shargh and Etemaad dailies, was detained in January 2012 as part of a crackdown. (…)
In a statement posted Monday on Twitter, Rasouli said she had been charged with “propaganda against the establishment and disruption of public order through participation in gatherings.” (…)
The first charge has been commonly used by Iran’s conservative-dominated judiciary to convict activists and journalists since the disputed 2009 presidential election that triggered widespread anti-regime protests.
Rasouli suggested the sentence had been approved by an appeals court, without elaborating, only adding that “I have to go to prison tomorrow to serve my sentence.”
