Tajazadeh, who had announced that he would only appear in an open and official court to face any charges, did not appear at the court that sentenced him to another year in prison.

Tajzadeh was arrested following the controversial 2009 presidential election in the wave of arrests of reformist figures and was sentenced to six years in jail for "assembly and collusion to disturb national security and propaganda against the regime."
