<<Two Iranian Journalists Sentenced to Total of Over Eight Years in Prison
Branch 36 of the Court of Appeals in Tehran province has sentenced two women journalists, Saeedeh Shafiei and Nasim Sultanbeigi, to more than four years in prison each. Shafiei and Sultanbeigi received three-year and six months prison sentences on the charge of <assembly and collusion.>
They were also handed seven months and 16 days in prison each for <propaganda activities> against the Islamic Republic. The court's verdict stipulates that the two journalists will be excluded from an <amnesty> announced in February. Shafiei and Sultanbeigi were initially sentenced to three years and seven months on the charge of <assembly and collusion.> <It would have been a more honorable decision to uphold the lower court's ruling,> Sultanbeigi wrote on Instagram after the appeals verdict. Shafiei and Sultanbeigi were arrested in October 2022, along with a number of other journalists, in the wake of widespread protests sparked by the death in police custody of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini. According to the Committee to Protect Journalists, a media freedom NGO, Iranian authorities have arrested at least 95 journalists since Amini's death in September 2022.>>

<<Appeal in Solidarity with Iranís <Courageous> Women Journalists
Dozens of prominent women journalists from across the world have joined Reporters Without Borders (RSF) in appealing to the Iranian authorities to put an end to their <relentless> targeting of independent media and to release all jailed journalists. <Journalists in Iran must be able to do their jobs, just as we are free to do our jobs in countries around the world. Journalism is not a crime!> the 31 signatories said in their joint appeal coinciding with the first anniversary of the start of the nationwide <Woman, Life, Freedom> protest movement in Iran. The signatories expressed their <unequivocal support for Iran's courageous women journalists> who have faced <enormous pressure> over the past year for covering Mahsa Aminiís death in police custody and the nationwide protests that it triggered. They said that the authorities have interrogated, arrested or detained at least 30 women journalists over the past year, among the 79 journalists arrested in total.
Four women journalists who were arrested during this period remain in detention to this day.
The appeal cites the emblematic cases of Niloofar Hamedi and Elaheh Mohammadi, who have been detained in Tehran's Evin prison since September 2022. The signatories of the appeal include Masih Alinejad and Rana Rahimpour, who have been targeted for their Iran-focused journalism from abroad. Women journalists facing abuse, threats and attacks in their own country contexts also joined the call, including Rana Ayyub from India, Lydia Cacho from Mexico and Ghada Oueiss from Lebanon. UK-based journalists Lyse Doucet (BBC) and Lindsey Hilsum (Channel 4) have also added their voices to the appeal, along with Alex Crawford (Sky News). <It is incredibly moving to see such strong international support for Iranís courageous women journalists who have risked their freedom and safety to provide vital information about what is happening in their country,> said Rebecca Vincent, RSF's Director of Campaigns. <The targeted journalists bravely worked to give a voice to Iran's women as they fought for their most fundamental rights, and now it is imperative that we lend our voices to them.> Iran is ranked 177th out of 180 countries in RSF's 2023 World Press Freedom Index.>>

<<Global Trade Union Condemns Escalating <Repression> in Iran
A global trade union representing over 200 million workers has condemned the <intensification of repressive measures> targeting teachers, journalists, trade union activists, student activists and women's rights defenders in Iran. <We denounce this repression and urgently call for its cessation, thereby enabling trade unionists to defend and uphold workers' rights in Iran, a cornerstone of any democratic society,> the Council of Global Unions (CGU) said in a statement on September 12 amid a sweeping crackdown on dissent ahead of the first anniversary of nationwide protests sparked by the death of Mahsa Amini in police custody. The Coordinating Council of the Iranian Teacher Trade Associations, the Union of Workers of Tehran and Suburban Bus Company and the Association of Iranian Journalists face <relentless harassment, arrests, prolonged detentions, and torture in prison,> it said. The organization also expressed concern about the <increasing influence> of the morality police and their enforcement of the Islamic Republic's mandatory hijab law to <harass women and prevent their access to education.> The CGU called on the Iranian authorities to <respect international labour standards, in particular freedom of association, and ensure that principles of human rights, justice, dignity and fairness prevail.>
It also expresses solidarity to womenís rights defenders in Iran <in their struggle for a democratic and secular society.> >>
