Tehran, Iran, Jul. 03 – Iran’s judiciary has sentenced a women’s right activist to lashes and prison time for taking part in an anti-government protest last year, state media reported.

Delaram Ali, who had taken part in a demonstration in Tehran on 12 June 2006 demanding greater women’s rights, was sentenced to 10 lashes and given a 2-year-and-20-month suspended prison term sentence.

The announcement was made by Nasrin Sotoudeh, Delaram’s lawyer. Her comments were carried by the government-owned news agency ILNA.

Delaram had been charged with “participating in an illegal gathering”, carrying out “propaganda activities against the state”, and “disturbing public order”.
