3 Iranians sentenced to 12 years in jail for criticizing the regime

The Iranian regime sentenced three young men to twelve years in prison, for criticizing the regime on their social media. The names of the three are Alireza Tavakoli, Mohammad Mehdi Zamanzadeh and Mohammad Mohajer. They were arrested already in 2016 and recently sentenced despite the fact that Rouhani signed the “Charter for Citizen Rights” which was meant to ensure the freedom of speech and expression, and his government pledged to protect these rights.
