For the crime of “propaganda against the regime”, an “appellate court” in IRR, the Islamist Rapist Republic, has approved one year prison term and 30 years ban from journalism for Zhila BaniYaghoub, an Iranian journalist and women’s rights activist.
BaniYaghoub’s husband, Bahman Ahmadi Amouyi, who is also an outstanding Iranian journalist, is currently serving a five-year sentence in Evin Prison for the same catch-all offense.
Forget about the nonsensical criminal charges, after all they are typical of Islamist justice. Even try to forget about the apartheid era tactic of banning people from their chosen profession and means of livelihood for political “offenses”. And try to overlook the length of the ridicules 30-year ban against Zhila.
My question is:
With her husband in jail, with her 30-year ban from working in her profession and the only means of income, how is she supposed to feed herself and her family?
