10:43 - 24 October 2019

Kurdpa Agency: The Iranian judiciary has issued 150 years in discretionary imprisonment sentence for two Kurdish political prisoners from  Kamyaran. 

 According to a report released by the Kurdistan Press Agency, two Kurdish political prisoners, "Heydar Ghorbani", son of Ali and "Mahmoud Sadeghi", son of Aref, from Kamyaran, were sentenced to 150 years in discretionary imprisonment by the Iranian judiciary.

 According to the verdict, Heydar Ghorbani was sentenced to 120 years in discretionary imprisonment for "cooperating with one of the Kurdish opposition parties of the Iranian government" and Mahmoud Sadeghi was sentenced to 30 years in discretionary imprisonment on the same allegation. 

 This sentence has been formally announced to these two political prisoners in Sanandaj prison in recent days.

 An informed source said in an interview with the Kurdpa Agency that the two political prisoners will be tried again in the Sanandaj Revolutionary Court.

 In late October 2016, intelligence agents arrested Heydar Ghorbani and accused him on several government agents of "assassinating". In March of the same year, Press TV, a British television station, released a documentary titled "The Driver of Death" that broadcast the part of the prisoner's forced confessions.

 Mahmoud Sadeghi was also arrested by intelligence forces 10 days after the arrest of Heydar Ghorbani on same allegation.
