Iranian Couple Jailed 10 Years For Dancing Outside

An Iranian couple in their 20s have been given jail sentences totaling 10 years after posting a video of themselves dancing in the street.

Astiazh Haqiqi, 21, and her fiance Amir Mohammad Ahmadi, 22, were reportedly convicted for "promoting corruption and prostitution, colluding against national security, and propaganda against the establishment".
The video showed them dancing by Tehran's Azadi (Freedom) Tower.
Authorities are handing heavy sentences to people seen to be involved in protests after the death of a woman who was detained by morality police.

The couple did not link their dance to the ongoing protests in Iran.

A source confirmed to BBC Monitoring that the couple's arrest came after they posted the video to their Instagram accounts, which has a combined following of nearly two million.

It is unclear how long the sentence is for each of the separate convictions they are facing. They have each been sentenced to a total of 10 and a half years - a combined sentence for the charges.
If their verdicts are upheld, they will have to serve the longest one of those sentencing terms.
They were also reportedly handed a two-year ban on using social media and leaving the country.

    1. Them don start already but people refuse to open their eyes.

  5. The Iranian regime is all about total and absolute control. Despite everything going on around the world, there are little things people do to keep themselves happy. But in Iran, people can’t even do those things.
    I know times are really tough in Nigeria at the moment but the sun will shine again.
    Thank goodness we don’t have such repressive government that can’t even let its citizens dance. Common to dance na wahala.

  6. This is total inhumane, na wa oh. Dictatorship
