Mohammad Hossein Rafiee

October 23, 2017

IN BRIEF

 

Mohammad Hossein Rafiee, a retired Tehran University professor and member of the Meli-Mazhabi (National-Religious) Alliance and Iran’s National Peace Council, was sentenced to six years in prison on May 25, 2015. He was released on September 21, 2016.
 

 

CASE HISTORY

     

Rafiee, 71, was charged with leading propaganda against the state and with active membership in the Council of Nationalist-Religious Activists, which had been deemed illegal. However, because Rafiee suffers from heart disease and high blood pressure, he was released on medical furlough due to poor health and has since been allowed to recuperate at his family’s home.
