10:40 - 12 January 2023

 Toheed (Loghman) Darvish, a Kurdish citizen from the village of "Granavik" in Qotur district of Khoy city, was sentenced by the first branch of Tabriz Revolutionary Court to 10 years imprisonment and banished to Ahvaz prison and payment of 5 billion tomans in damages to the bank.

 According to an informed source, this sentence was issued in recent days, and Mr. Darvish informed his family on Sunday, January 8th, in a short phone call.

 Not long ago, Masoud Shamsnejad, lawyer, announced that the first branch of Tabriz Revolutionary Court has prevented him from accepting his representation for the case of Toheed (Loghman) Darvish.

 Toheed (Loghman) Darvish was arrested on September 29th during the Tabriz protests and was accused of "war against the God" by the General and Revolutionary Prosecutor's Office of this city.

 This citizen has been denied access to any lawyer and visit with his family during his detention.

 The security forces arrested this citizen for participating in the burning of one of the banks in Tabriz and severely tortured him to get a forced confession.  The court has refused to accept a lawyer for his case for security reasons.

 Toheed Darvish, 27 years old, father of two children, was a Snap driver.  After the March 2020 earthquake and the loss of their home, Darvish's family had to leave their village and stay in Khoi city.
