The 15th branch of the Tehran Revolutionary Court, presided over by Abulqasem Salavati, sentenced journalists Elahe Mohammadi to 12 years in prison and Niloofar Hamedi to 13 years in prison on October 22.
Hamedi and Mohammadi are being held at Tehran’s Evin Prison. They are accused of collaborating with the "hostile" government of the United States, "colluding to commit crimes against national security," and engaging in "propaganda activities against the system."
Before her arrest, Hamedi captured an image of Mahsa Amini’s parents embracing each other at a Tehran hospital while their daughter was in a coma, and shared the photo on Twitter. Mohammadi wrote a report on Mahsa's funeral titled "A Nation in Mourning."
