The Revolutionary Court of the Islamic Republic of Iran has announced the prison sentences passed on these three remaining workers who were arrested after the 2004 May Day demonstrations in the city of Saqez.

On 9 November, Mahmood Salehi and Jalal Hosseini were also sentenced to imprisonment. The court in Saqez passed these sentences for the “crime” of organising independent May Day commemorations in 2004.

Borhan Divangar, chair of the National Organisation of the Unemployed still faces additional charges.
