Zeidabadi was arrested in June 2009 in connection with the widespread protests that followed Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's contested re-election.

The journalist has been sentenced to six years in prison, exile to Gonabad and a lifetime prohibition from social and political activity.

The opposition reports that over the past two years, 108 journalists have been arrested, and while some have been released, many still remain behind bars. Journalists are held under severe hardship and are often denied family visits and the temporary leave commonly granted to many prisoners.
