Shahnaz Sagvand is once again on trial

Today on 9 o’clock Shahnaz Sagvand, the wife of Ali Nejati the labour activist and board member of Haft-Tapeh Sugar Cane workers union, appeared before the revolutionary court of the Dezful city on charges of “propaganda against the regime” and “taking photographs from her husband in prison and publishing them in the media”.The court decision will be communicated to her later.
She was trialed and acquitted with the very same charge earlier in the city of Susa.
This is an act of intimidation and just to put more pressure on labour activists.
