On Saturday September 8 Shahrokh Zamani, a member of the Re-launching Committee of the Trade Union of Painters and Decorators and a member of the Council of Representatives of the Committee for the Pursuit of the Creation of Free Labour Organisations, who has been charged with the crime of forming a socialist group and "propaganda against the system" was taken to Branch 2 of Tabriz's Revolutionary Court for retrial on charges of insulting the regime's Leader.
Shahrokh already has an 11-year suspended sentence hanging over him and has been held in
detention centre for some months. The whole court case against him was based on
fabricated testimonials by two disreputable inmates. Karaj
On September 26 Branch 2 of Tabriz's
Court sentenced Shahrokh to serve six months in

political activities. Karaj
