Iran: Kurd woman sentenced to 50 lashes for “disrupting order”
A Kurd student activist, Zamaneh Zivi, was sentenced to 50 lashes and fined on charges of “disrupting public order.”
An informed source said that the Kurd student who is studying law at Payame Noor University in Saghez, was arrested on November 6 by security forces at her home following street celebrations in support of the Kurdistan independence referendum.
This student was subjected to an ambiguous legal procedure in which she was charged and tried for acting against national security, participating in illegal gatherings and disrupting order.
On December 7, after going to court, her lawyer realized that the civil rights activist was sentenced to 50 lashes and a 1,800,000 toman (507 dollars) fine.
