Iran Arrests Former President’s Daughter on ‘Propaganda’ Charges

September 23, 2012

The daughter of former Iranian president Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani was taken into custody late yesterday to serve a six-month sentence on charges of “propaganda against the regime,” the state-run Mehr news agency reported.

Faezeh Hashemi’s trial started in December, her lawyer Gholam-Ali Riyahi said at the time.

Hashemi was arrested twice for joining anti-government rallies following the unrest triggered by president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s disputed re-election in 2009.
