An Iranian Workers’ rights advocate was transferred to Adelabad prison on Tuesday to serve a three-year sentence.

Mohammad Davari’s conviction stems from charges of “insulting the Supreme Leader of Iran” and “propaganda against the Islamic Republic,” according to the Human Rights Activists News Agency (HRANA).

A source close to Davari’s family confirmed his incarceration to HRANA.

The Shiraz Revolutionary Court, presided over by Judge Mahmood Sadati, originally sentenced Davari to four-and-a-half years in prison in November 2023.

Under Article 134 of the Islamic Penal Code, the harshest sentence is served when a person faces multiple charges.

Davari also faces additional restrictions, including a two-year travel ban, a social media ban, and a mandatory two-year residence in Bardsir County upon release.

The specific actions that led to the charges against Davari remain unclear.

This is not Davari’s first brush with authorities.

He has a history of arrests and convictions related to his activism for workers’ rights.

Davari holds a civil engineering degree from Yasuj University and is a Master’s student in political science at Shiraz Payam Noor University.
