A court in Iran sentenced two journalists to up to seven years in prison for collaborating with the U.S. government and other charges, local reports said Sunday. Both women have been imprisoned for over a year following their coverage of the death of Mahsa Amini while in police custody in September 2022.
The sentencing can be appealed within 20 days.
The two journalists are Niloufar Hamedi, who broke the news of Amini’s death for wearing her headscarf too loose, and Elaheh Mohammadi, who wrote about Amini’s funeral. They were sentenced to seven and six years in prison, respectively, the judiciary news website Mizan reported Sunday.
