Mr. Seyyed Ahmad went through a 40-day interrogation while he was held in solitary confinement in ward 209 of Evin Prison, and was later released on bail, temporarily.
Charged with “propaganda against the regime, assembly and conspiracy”, Afshin Seyyed Ahmad was then sentenced to three years imprisonment in branch 28 of the Revolutionary Court of Tehran, presided over by Judge Mogheiseh.
Following a telephone summons by the legal authorities at Shahid Moghaddas Public Prosecutor’s Office at Evin Prison, he went to that prison and was arrested. He was first transferred to Evin Prison, and later to the quarantine ward of Rajai Shahr Prison.
