The son of former Iranian Intelligence Minister Ali Younesi, has been sentenced to a year prison, according to reports.

On Tuesday, Iran’s opposition television channel Rasa TV reported that Hasan Younesi, son of former Intelligence Minister Ali Younesi, was sentenced to a year in prison, a fine, as well as a five-year ban from practicing law.

Younesi, a pro-reform lawyer, was arrested on 20 February, during opposition protests to demand the release of Green Movement leaders Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mahdi Karroubi, who are still under house arrest.

According to Rasa, Younesi was recently removed from Evin prison’s ward 209 and taken to ward 350.

Younesi’s father Ali Younesi was Iran’s Intelligence Minister during the reformist presidency of Mohammad Khatami.
