TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — The daughter of former Iranian President Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani has been convicted and sentenced to six months in prison on charges of making propaganda against the ruling system.

The conservative mashreghnews.ir website reported on Tuesday that Tehran’s Revolutionary Court also banned Faezeh Hashemi from taking part in political, cultural and media activities for the next five years.

Hashemi has 20 days to appeal the sentence. Her trial took place behind closed doors last month.

Her lawyer, Gholam Ali Riahi, has said the charges against her are related to interviews she gave to news websites.

Hashemi appeared at opposition protests after the disputed June 2009 presidential elections and was briefly detained in February.
