Decision of the Court

This is with regard to the appeal of Mr. Ali Ahmadi, represented by Mr. Tavakkol Farajpour Kordasiabi, regarding Judgment Number 9109971512600010, dated 15 Farvardin 1391 [3 April 2012] issued by Branch 2 of the Islamic Republic Revolutionary Court of Sari County, which included his sentence of one year of imprisonment for propaganda against the regime of the Islamic Republic by way of propaganda for the perverse Baha’i sect.

It is not intended to cause the reversal and invalidity of the judgment and to become an object of protest. The aforementioned judgment is free from legal defects in terms of finding guilt and paying attention to the reasons for allegations; investigations carried out; complying with the legal article; and determining the punishment; however, considering that the length of the sentence is inconsistent with the manner and level of activity, the appellant is entitled to a reduction in his punishment.

In implementing addendum 2 of Article 22 of the Law of the Public and Revolutionary Courts Procedures Reform Act with subsequent amendments and Article 30, section 2 of the collection of government revenues, Circular Number 9000/1402/100 dated 18 Farvardin 1389 [18 April 2010], the esteemed head of the Judiciary approves and confirms the conversion of the appellant’s imprisonment into a pecuniary penalty of forty million rials in favour of the government and rejects the appeal, based on paragraph A of Articles 257 and 250 of the Rules of Procedure of Civil and Revolutionary Courts in Criminal Matters. The decision of the Court is final.
