Iran: Islamic Authorities Reject Imprisoned Monarchist’s Appeal

Islamic officials have rejected the monarchist prisoner’s request for appeal. Arshia Naghavi Anaraki, who is being kept in Bandar Abbas prison, was sentenced to 18 years imprisonment.

He was arrested four years ago and (initially) sent to Kerman prison. The Islamic court has sentenced him to a prison term for alleged charges of ‘acting against national security’, ‘propaganda against IRI’, and ‘insulting the supreme leader and the founder of IRI’.
