Political prisoner sentenced to 39 years & 170 lashes by judge Salavati

Alireza Gholipour is a political prisoner who was convicted two weeks ago of all the “regular crimes” such as “spying”, problems with “national security”, “insulting” the regime and the Supreme Leader etc… The notorious judge Salavati convicted him to 39 years in jail as well as 170 lashes for all of Gholipour’s crimes. The fact that Gholipour is suffering from lung cancer which is not being treated for in prison, that he was tortured during interrogation and that he was forbidden to meet with his lawyer only makes his predicament all the more distressing.
