Caspian International News Agency– The Telegram Channel of Ayatollah Montazeri, has posted a text announcing Ahmad Montazeri’s sentence by the special clerical court.
The message reads as follows:
In the name of God
Following the release of the audio files of Ayatollah Montazeri about the executions of 1367 summer, and after several interrogations, on 1395/09/07, Ahmad Montazeri was summoned to court and his sentence was pronounced.
Based on this sentence, Mr. Montazeri is sentenced to 10 years in prison for acting against national security, 10 years for releasing the confidential audio file, and 1 year for propaganda against the Islamic Republic of Iran, adding to 21 years in prison.
Considering the value and respect for his martyr brother, his age and special condition, and lack of criminal records, only 6 years of his sentence will be carried out.
Because these actions are considered contrary to the dignity of ecclesiastics, the accused is defrocked, and because he is of a martyr family, his defrocking will be suspended for 3 years.
