Iranian student activist, Abdollah Momeni has been sentenced to 8 years in prison by Iranian judiciary. Fatemeh Adinehvand, the accused's wife told Zamaneh that Mr. Momeni has been sentenced to six years in prison for "participating in post-election gatherings" on top of a two year sentence which he received for earlier charge of "activities against national security."

Ms. Adinehvand told Zamaneh that his husband did not take part in any gatherings. She also maintains that his trial was behind closed doors without any defence attorneys present.

Ms. Adinehvand is given an appointment to meet her husband next Wednesday.

Adollah Momeni was also presented in the mass trial of election protesters in summer giving self-incriminatory testimony against his past political activities.
