Kolahchian’s mention of the Telegram channel is “without retouching”, according to which, as reported by the Iranian Human Rights Network, Davoodi was charged with attempting to “overthrow the regime.”

After that, Vahid Meshgani Farahani, Davoodi’s lawyer, told the Modara website, that “based on the charges against him, he was also sentenced to 111 lashes, fines of 60 million rials (about $1800) in cash, and the deprivation of all his social rights for 2 years.”

Last year, on 29 November, Amir-Salar Davoodi was detained by the Judiciary Counter Intelligence Forces.

According to the Human Rights Organization of Iran, Amir Salar Davoodi was confronted with seven charges in two cases: “Gathering and collusion, false propaganda, insulting officials, insulting the leadership, and propaganda against the regime” by the First Interrogation Branch of Evin Prison and “Forming a group for regime change and cooperation with the hostile government of the United States” by the Second Interrogation Branch of Evin Prison.

Davoodi has represented political prisoners and Baha’is as a lawyer.

    Believers in Islam should honor others who believe in God. The prophet cries tears to see the hatred and evil men are doing to each other in the name of religion.
