Shirin Saeedi, a political prisoner, has been handed a five-year prison sentence by the Revolutionary Court of Tehran. 

Saeedi is currently confined to the Women’s Ward of Evin Prison. 

Her conviction arises from charges of "assembly and collusion to act against national security."

Saeedi still has the opportunity to appeal within a 20-day timeframe.

The specific actions underlying these political allegations remain undisclosed.

At approximately 53 years old, Saeedi previously lived in Lebanon before returning to Iran. 

Judicial authorities summoned her on December 23, 2023, and subsequently charged her with "assembly and collusion against national security," which led to her detention in Evin Prison.
