 The sentences were officially announced on Tuesday, January 28th to these two Kurdish political prisoners in the central prison of Sanandaj.

 Earlier, the Sanandaj Revolutionary Court sentenced Heidar Ghorbani to 120 years in discretionary prison for "collaborating with one of the Kurdish opposition parties" and Mahmoud Sadeghi was also sentenced to 30 years in prison.

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