Tehran, Jan. 22 – An Iranian medical student was sentenced to two years prison time and 74 lashes by Iran’s Revolutionary Court on political charges, according to a state-run news agency.

Reza Ashrafpour, a young man studying dentistry in Iran’s University of Medical Sciences had been charged with “acting against national security”, “propaganda against the regime”, “spreading panic in society”, and “insulting the Supreme Leader”.

It is believed that authorities were looking to convict Ashrafpour for the past two years.

Security forces have in recent months launched a new clampdown on youth and women in universities as part of a new campaign to stem the spate of anti-government protests in the country.
