Iranian Student Activist Bahareh Hedayat sentenced to 9 1/2 years in prison

An Iranian appellate court approved the nine and a half year prison sentence for Bahareh Hedayat, executive member of Iranian student organization, Consolidation Bureau today.

In her preliminary court, Bahareh Hedayat was sentenced to five years in prison for “assembly and collusion against the regime”, two years for “insulting the leadership” and another six months for “insulting the president and advertising against the regime.”

She also had a two year suspended prison term from four years ago for organizing a demonstration on June 12.

Hedayat, who is also a member of the One Million Signatures Campaign to change discriminatory laws against Iranian women, was arrested last December and is currently in women’s section of Evin Prison.

In November 2009, Bahareh released a video in commemoration of International Student’s Day in which she addresses the European Students Union.  She tells about the plight of Iranian students whom are fighting for Democracy.  She also speaks about fraud in the election and calls the regime a dictatorship.  She was subsequently arrested a few weeks after this video was released.
