Narges Mohammadi's appeal referred to Revolutionary Court: lawyer

The Persian-language daily `Mardomsalari' reported on Sunday that the appeal of Narges Mohammadi has been referred to the Revolutionary Court, IRNA reported from Tehran.

Mardomsalari quoted Mohammadi's defense lawyer Mohammad Sharif as saying that the office of the court had registered the receipt of the appeal on Saturday morning.

Sharif also said that Mohammadi's case had been referred to the public court after her charges were announced to be beyond the authority of the Revolutionary Court, adding that he had received no notice from the public court on the date of a trial.

Mohammadi, the wife of political dissident Taqi Rahmani, has already received a one-year term for charges of insulting state officials following her interviews with the press about the imprisonment of her husband.

Rahmani was arrested in March 2001 along with some 60 political activists with alleged links to the nationalist-religious group and the Freedom Movement of Iran (FMI).

Almost all of those detained were released later and stood trial on various charges including plotting to topple the Islamic Revolution.
