I got this great news this morning from my Iranian cartoonist buddy, Nik Kowsar and CRNI. From Nik:
Had a short chat with Mohammad Moghimi, Atena’s lawyer a few minutes ago.
He confirmed that the Appeals’ Court No.54 of the Province of Tehran’s Judiciary has reduced Atena’s sentence from 12 years and 9 months, to 18 months.
By his calculation, she should be free in 2-3 weeks.
She has been acquitted from charges of undermining national security, and her 3 year imprisonment for insulting the supreme leader has been suspended for 4 years.
The 9 month sentence of insulting the president, members of parliament and the guards of ward 2-A of Evin prison has changed to a monetary fine (not mentioned yet).
The 18 months prison for propaganda against the regime has been confirmed by the Appeal’s Court.
I have not been able to talk to Atena’s father yet, but I thanked the lawyer on CRNI’s behalf for his great work and devotion.
I think this is extremely important and I hope we could see Atena start a new and successful life.
Thanks again for all your support.
