TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — An Iranian news agency is reporting that the daughter of former President Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani has received a six-month suspended prison sentence on charges of slandering top officials.

The semi-official ISNA news agency quoted Fatemeh Hashemi Rafsanjani’s lawyer, Vahid Abolma’ali, as saying Saturday that the verdict was issued by the Revolutionary Court in Tehran. Abolma’ali says he will appeal the verdict.

The case stems from comments she made about the country’s judiciary chief.

Rafsanjani’s younger daughter, Faezeh, and middle son, Mahdi, have spent time behind bars in the past on various charges, including fomenting unrest in the aftermath of Iran’s disputed 2009 presidential election and creating propaganda against the ruling government. They have denied the charges.
