Iran Human Rights (Jul 30, 2018): Mohammad Hossein Maleki, sentenced to death by the Revolutionary Court on the charge of “corruption on earth” through the sale of CCcam and unlocking satellite channels”, was transferred to the solitary confinement on Sunday, July 29.
According to a close source, on Sunday, July 29. Mohammad Hossein Maleki, the manager of Asre-Javan website and its Telegram channel who is held at Dastgerd Prison in Isfahan, was transferred to the solitary confinement.
One of Maleki’s relatives told IHR, “Mohammad Hossein Maleki is probably sent to the solitary confinement in order to be put under pressure and make a forced confession. Over the last few days, Maleki’s family and lawyer were pressured because of passing on the information to human rights institutes.”
While expressing its concern, Iran Human Rights warns about the illegal pressure that is put on this prisoner because of making his unfair verdict known to the public and emphasizes that any confession that is obtained from him is illegal.
Mohammad Hossein Maleki, known as Aryan, 47, from Isfahan, was arrested by the agents of the Ministry of Intelligence on March 1, 2017, and was sentenced to “corruption on earth through organized activities regarding the sale of CCcam and several satellite accounts” at Branch 2 of the Revolutionary Court of Isfahan. In the early stages of the investigation, the interrogator had ordered for suspension of prosecution for Mohammad Hossein Maleki, however, the prosecutor objected the order and the case was sent to the Revolutionary Court of Tehran, and then to the Supreme Court, and finally to Branch 2 of the Revolutionary Court of Isfahan.
He was also sentenced to a fine of 10 million Rials on the charge of “using satellite reception equipment” by Branch 101 of Shahin Shahr Court.
