Iran has sentenced French-Iranian anthropologist and academic Fariba Adelkhah, 61, to six years in prison on charges of gathering and conspiring against national security, and for propaganda against the Islamic republic, her lawyer said on Saturday.
“The court has sentenced her to six years. We have appealed and if accepted, this sentence will drop to five years,” Adelkhah’s lawyer, Saeid Dehghan, told Reuters.
In January, Iran dropped spying charges against Adelkhah but she remained in jail on other security-related charges, her lawyer told Reuters in March.
