Feizollah Arabsorkhi, a prominent reformist figure, was arrested after the 2009 election protests and imprisoned until last year.

Sajedeh Arabsorkhi was charged in absentia while outside the country and was sentenced last year upon her return to Iran. Her one-year sentence has been approved by the appeals court.
